For the past 7 days, we at WiLD have been on a Human Rights campaign, without even knowing it. The whole crusade began with my allowing a listener that we’ll just call “Christopher” use our Confessions At 7 segment, to come out to his family and friends. In support of his new freedom, and to set the tone of acceptance, we aired a song called “Same Love” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat Mary Lambert. It got rave reviews while also sparking quite venomous statements and attacks toward myself and out station for “pushing MY gay agenda into listeners faces”, for using the station to pollute minds” etc. WiLD has and always will represent the mass populous of people Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Gay, Straight, Bi or Transgendered. We represent and welcome all to enjoy our events, our music, and our apparently unique perspective of the proverbial party and who’s invited. Come one, come all…and ironically, after this morning’s recap of the hateful messages sprinkled in with mountains of love and support for our Tampa LGBT community, Hillary Clinton has joined the “all”, with her own support.
It’s a great day at WiLD 94-1 today, because we feel that we gave many a louder and more proud voice.
