The It Gets Better Project has touched the world with its goal to help LGBT youth see hope in their futures, and it's also moved many artists and groups to put their own messages out there in the form of music. OutRadio this month is my salute to the project and my effort to document some of these musical efforts, along with sharing other songs of the past that addressed the topic of anti-gay bullying and teen suicide.

Notes: entire script available on website, at http://www.queermusicheritage.com/outnov10.html
For every QMH show I have uploaded several pages to my website, http://www.queermusicheritage.com. The information includes the playlist, script, and photos of the artists and recordings, as I have always considered our music history as a visual as well as an audio experience. In addition the website also includes in depth information on such areas as gay musicals, Songs about Gay Marriage, Songs about AIDS, a Drag Music Discography, an Olivia Records Discography, Women’s Music Magazines, a number of features on Transgendered artist and countless interviews over the years with the pioneers, then and now, of our music culture. It’s a huge site, with over 1200 pages, and growing. Since January 2000 QMH has been dedicated to sharing and preserving music of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community
The show airs monthly on KPFT-FM in Houston as a part of the program Queer Voices, but almost every month has additional hours featured on the website. If you air this edition I would appreciate a quick email, at qmheritage@aol.com, so that I can get a feel on where my many hours of hard, labor of love work are reaching.
