Since 2019 and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, JustFundKY has generously supported RADIOLEX. 

Funds from the Cliff Todd Endowment have allowed RADIOLEX to create multiple series showcasing the lives and stories of LGBTQ+ members of our community.

Colorful Exchanges is a series of interviews hosted by Shawn Ka’Ron Bumpase exploring the experience of black LGBTQ+ members of our community. 

 A spin-off series, Meeting at the Intersections, hosted by Wanda McCants explores interracial relationships in the LGBTQ+ community. 

Voces del Arcoiris features Spanish-language profiles of Hispanic members of Kentucky’s LGBTQ+ community.  

Out & About in Kentucky hosted by Kevin Nance is a series of interviews with LGBTQ+ folks from our community who are making their mark in Lexington and the world.  

The Deep End, hosted by Mark J. Royse, is a series of in-depth conversations about intersectional issues in the LGBTQ+ community with panels of guests and individuals.

In 2022, JustFundKY awarded RADIOLEX a new grant to create a series of Out & About in Kentucky episodes showcasing the work of LGBTQ+ organizations in our community and around Kentucky.

RADIOLEX is broadcasting JustFundKY Pride Specials this week on WLXU 93.9FM:

  • Monday, June 27:  RADIOLEX will launch a special Pride Playlist on SoundCloud of the complete collection of Deep End content produced with support from JustFundKY for easy, on-demand listening.
