Since I began QMH in 2000 this is my tenth show entirely devoted to the music of Transgender Artists. And I love doing shows like this, as it not only gives me a chance to share their music, but also to share a bit of their lives and journeys. In 2007 I did a series of four shows in a row, so now I'm going to sort of catch up with music mostly newer than that. And I've got I think some very interesting feature interviews, with Radford Bishop of the queercore band Tough Tough Skin, and with acoustic rock artist Angela Motter.

And, don't miss (almost) my favorite part, where I show photos of the artists and CDs, cause I think our music is a visual AND audio experience...just "click for graphics" in each playlist block

I did the "math," and over the years on these 15 shows,
I've played 142 different TG artists, and over
350 different songs, some of them several times, and I routinely
include TG artists on most of my other shows

I have never considered QMH to really be a Houston show, but I do want to give support and attention to a wonderful organization that while located in Houston I feel reaches far beyond.
My Queer Voices co-host Jenifer Rene Pool on October 14, 2008, did an excellent interview with Cristan Williams (below), Board Member of the Transgender Foundation of America. They have graciously allowed me to share that 18-minute segment.
