A show with a special focus, Teen View: Music of LGBT Youth.And what I
want to do is give voice to our young people, and share how they expressed
their struggles, frustrations, loves and longings in song. Now most
of these were not written when the artists were actually teens, but
they were able to remember and share those feelings. And I hope this sharing
connects with my younger listeners, and also those who want to look back.

This show was inspired by the Houston group HATCH, which is dedicated to empowering LGBTQIA youth. Founded in 1987, it's been a wonderful resource for our community.
