|Meak Productions brings LGBT issues to the airwaves|

Meak Productions dubs itself as the “World’s First LGBT Exclusive Talent Agency, Casting & Production Company,” but is perhaps best known by many in the Atlanta LGBT community for its live radio remotes from such events as the Transgender Day of Remembrance and the recent NOH8 photo shoot.
Miko Evans, CEO and executive producer of Meak Productions, also hosts the syndicated Same Gender Loving Expressions on the Exceptional Radio Network and recently partnered with Click Click Expose to have a program which features LGBT indie music artists, he said.
Same Gender Loving Expressions is a radio show that tries to break out of the box of normal radio shows, Evans said, and has included interviews with mostly African-American Atlanta LGBT business leaders and community activists.
“We wanted to get the voices out there that aren’t always heard,” Evans said. “There are a lot of us in the LGBT community who are not able to tell our stories.”
The mission of Meak Productions is “to provide an avenue of marketing exposure and performance opportunities to LGBT talent, as well as create a more professional equal and diverse image of LGBT culture, which in turn will help prevent the current stereotypes and discrimination towards the community as a whole.”
“We are the first syndicated radio show to do live remotes, we broadcast live from last year’s International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia (IDAHO) and from the Sylvia Rivera Brunch,” Evans said.
Currently the company is restructuring and undergoing planning for the future, he added.
Podcasts of old SGL shows can also be heard online.
Meak Productions is currently accepting new music tracks to be included in its February edition of the Music Radio Show (The Various Artists Talent Showcase). Send all MP3’s to: [email protected].
