As Atlanta prepares for its third annual observance of the International Day Against Homophobia, it has grown to encompass three days of events scheduled in cities across Georgia.
Atlanta's IDAHO events are being organized by Betty Couvertier, host of the alt-radio program Alternative Perspectives, which airs on WRFG.
This year's event features the theme “sexual diversity in the workplace,” but Couvertier told GA Voice this week that many issues affect the state's LGBT communities and will be highlighted during IDAHO, from housing and employment to healthcare and safe schools.
Meak Productions dubs itself as the “World’s First LGBT Exclusive Talent Agency, Casting & Production Company,” but is perhaps best known by many in the Atlanta LGBT community for its live radio remotes from such events as the Transgender Day of Remembrance and the recent NOH8 photo shoot.
Miko Evans, CEO and executive producer of Meak Productions, also hosts the syndicated Same Gender Loving Expressions on the Exceptional Radio Network and recently partnered with Click Click Expose to have a program which features LGBT indie music artists, he said.
Same Gender Loving Expressions is a radio show that tries to break out of the box of normal radio shows, Evans said, and has included interviews with mostly African-American Atlanta LGBT business leaders and community activists.
