Web site technical issues:  As of February 2018, we have become aware of two technical issues on our web site. 

  • The first issue is that some users have reported that our audio player modules are incompatible with some browsers on some devices; on February 6, 2018, we added an HTML5 audio player alongside the standard player we've been using; please report to us if you cannot hear our audio using either of the players.
  • The second issue is that the Contact page is not working.  We are working to fix it, but if you need to contact us in the meantime, please do so through our Facebook page.  Thank you!

 

 

OutCasting, public radio's groundbreaking LGBTQ youth program, is produced monthly by MFPG — Media for the Public Good, Inc., a national nonprofit public media production organization with a local public radio heritage: for many years, we owned and operated a public radio station just north of New York City — WDFH FM 90.3 Westchester Public Radio. 

MFPG produces OutCasting , a 29 minute broadcast program, and shorter OutCasting Overtime pieces.  Each comes out monthly.

 

MISSION — MFPG's mission is to give a national voice to LGBTQ youth, train a new generation of media activists, and contribute to our national discussion of LGBTQ issues.

 

LISTEN — You can hear OutCasting here on MFPG.org and via iTunes.  And hear the show on public radio:  OutCasting is distributed nationally on the Pacifica Radio Network and can be heard on public radio stations around the country.

 

SUPPORT — We need your support to produce this program.  Please make your tax-deductible gift now!  And if you're a possible major individual donor or a foundation or a business that wants to support the LGBTQ community through OutCasting, please see our special message for you.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA —  Find OutCasting on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and  Tumblr @outcastingmedia.  Please join us there and tell your friends!
