My Queer Music Heritage show for July features the Outmusic Awards, held in New York City on June 9, 2002.

And this page also gives you access to hear the awards event itself, and the AudioFile news story on it.

And, also, I want to share photos I took at the Awards, and during the week preceding it, at the Outmusic Open Mic for June, and several artist performances held at various venues, such as the Robert Urban Productions shows at Sun Music Company. So, please enjoy the following pages.
