The Tenth Voice (LGBT)
The Tenth Voice is the Kansas City area’s only weekly broadcast created by and for LGBTQIA people in our community in the Greater Kansas City area and around the world online. Listeners can tune in each Saturday at 1:00 PM. Each week our team of hosts and producers present interviews, information, music, news and features especially important to Lesbians, Gay Men, Bisexuals, Transgender and Allied collective communities. Since 1989, The Tenth Voice radio show has documented and informed the LGBTQIA Kansas City Community.
The name of the show comes from the early Dr. Kinsey sex studies where he determined that 1 in 10 people are homosexual. That number has changed over time but just like the historic Stonewall name, we are keeping ours for the same reason.
