In this exclusive audio interview Rick Andreoli, Editor in Chief of gay.com turns the tables on Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ to learn more about her and the history behind this significant LGBT media source. When asked about the inspiration behind OUTTAKE VOICES™ Robinson Stated, “When gay marriage became legal in Massachusetts in 2004, I was really disappointed at the lack of mainstream media coverage of our LGBT issues. I think it’s very important to provide a place where people can come and listen to what we have to say and who we are.”
Robinson has interviewed over 100 politicians and celebrities since launching OUTTAKE VOICES™ in December 2008. Guests Include: Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin; Jarrett Barrios, President of GLAAD; Gay Activist Cleve Jones and comedians Kate Clinton and Margaret Cho— to name a few. Politics and entertainment provide a unique blend of conversation for this interview series. Many guests come on OUTTAKE VOICES™ as a dress rehearsal before they appear on Rachael Maddow or Hardball with Chris Mathews and similar shows. Others to promote a movie, book or concert and find themselves going beyond the usual fluff promotional type-interview as they passionately express their views on LGBT civil rights.
When asked about the motivation behind OUTTAKE VOICES™ Charlotte added, “There’s a lot of gratification from doing this. Every year we interview Trevor Project's Charles Robbins to promote the Cracked XMAS Event to help prevent LGBTQ teen suicide and every day we have people listening to this interview…. Also, we’re a Google News source which allows us to compete with mainstream media. We have over 10,000 subscribers to our iTunes series and new people discovering us everyday from around the world. We want to expand OUTTAKE VOICES™. We’re just looking for the right media partner and sponsors so we can reach a larger global audience.”
