HOW ABOUT $3? $2??

Dear "This Way Out" Affiliate Station General Manager, Program Director, Operations Manager, and/or News-Public Affairs-Spoken Word Director:

We've offered our award-winning program each week to the public radio community free of charge for more than 25 years. We've never asked stations to pay for "This Way Out" since its debut in April 1988, and we never will. But a few stations have occasionally contributed to our 501(c)(3) nonprofit volunteer operation, for which we will always be grateful. After so many years on the air, we've virtually exhausted traditional foundation funding possibilities, so we hope *your* station will help us now, too.
=> Especially if your station gets our weekly program for free via, please send us a voluntary "Annual Program Acquisition Payment" of $250 - more if your budget allows, or whatever your station can afford. Even $100 will really help! And even if your station indirectly "pays" for "This Way Out" as a Pacifica Radio affiliate, we hope you'll also support us financially if you're able.

We know that fiscal times are tough -- but with so much happening so fast regarding key LGBT issues around the world - such as marriage equality, job rights, hate crimes, and political and theological conflicts over LGBT issues - the need for the kind of news and information that "This Way Out" uniquely delivers has never been more important.

Let me know if you need a simple invoice or other paperwork to process this request. Otherwise, please authorize your station's check for $250 - more if you're able, or whatever amount you can afford - mailed to This Way Out, POB 1065, Los Angeles, CA 90078. You can also use the secure PayPal link by scrolling down to it at our Web site,

We're relying on the *community* in "public radio community" to help keep us going.

On behalf of Associate Producer Lucia Chappelle and our many other volunteers, listeners isolated by the closet for whom "This Way Out" can be a life-saving supportive voice, activists who count on the global news they can hear nowhere else, and non-gay listeners who are enlightened and entertained by the diverse programming we offer, our heartfelt thanks to each of you for your carriage and — if possible - your financial support!
