Out Loud is KBOO's queer culture radio show, celebrating & serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning & allied communities. We feature interviews with community groups, authors, musical talent, and anyone from the queer & allied communities. We strive to give voice to those not heard in the main stream media.
Update on our schedule change for 2013 :: Out Loud will not air the last Tuesday of each month in 2013. Instead, you can enjoy 'Tune In, Turn On and Remember: 45 years of KBOO Community Radio'. This special public affairs programming consists of gems from the KBOO archives in celebration of our 45th anniversary!
Out Loud is a community created radio show. We need volunteers to help create Out Loud. Please consider getting involved, as there are many things that need to happen before, during and after each radio show. Your skills and contributions are welcome and needed! Email us if you have any questions about getting involved, or even if you just want to say 'Hi!'
