It’s Happening OUT is America’s Most Popular LIVE Gay Talk Show! The show talks about the issues that are most affecting the LGBTQ+ community in both serious and light hearted segments on our new night WEDNESDAY at 8 PM ET on Facebook and Youtube! The show was created with the idea that it was “just in time” due to the mounting fear in the gay community over Donald Trump and his policies that would do grievous harm to the country and in particular to the rights of LGBTQ+ people who had fought for so long to gain those rights. There is real, palpable dread for the future and It’s Happening OUT is the bridge between that dread and communicating it to the rest of the world.

It’s Happening OUT is also extremely proud of the diversity of our cast and crew! Our hosts are Drag Queen DJ/Diva-Power Infiniti, Trans Activist- Aaron Phoenix, Fashion Designer Carlos Marrero, DC Republican Committee Log Cabin Member-Joe Brookman and our Gay Guru HostAl Ferguson. Behind the scenes there is an equal number of rich and diverse backgrounds, making the show as inclusive as any in America!

We PRIDE ourselves and want to to thrive on being unique and ahead of the curve. That is why we made the decision to air every one of our episodes LIVE to a national audience – no do overs or resets, just an hour or more of LIVE production! We also don’t get bogged down by what people might expect a show like this to be about, because there’s never been a show like this! We dive into politics and debate furiously one minute and the next segment we are knocking back drinks in one of our games asking the hosts if they agree with a variety of statements. We also dare to ask the questions like “Can the size be … too big?” and “Do you like your coffee like you like your men?” We are also immensely proud to feature guests with something to say on our show every week! Guests of prominence have included world famous Drag Queen & Commedian Varla Jean Merman Vice President of Sunny.org-Richard Gray, Mayor of Fort LauderdaleDean Trantalis and Mayor of Wilton Manors-Gary Resnick as well as acclaimed author-Del Shores! As well as the newly elected President of The Log Cabin RepublicansJerri Ann Henry.
