imageWhile you cruise through the latest posts on Project Q Atlanta, don’t you wish you had the chance to learn a little bit more about the bloggers who put a little gay in your day? Tonight is your chance.

The bloggers and journalists behind Project Q — Matt Hennie and Mike Fleming — are guests tonight on Betty Couvertier’s radio show “Alternative Perspectives.” The show begins at 7 p.m. on WRFG 89.3 FM. If you don’t own one of those FM receiver things, stream directly from WRFG’s site.

Don’t worry — we won’t be talking for the entire hour. We’re not that interesting.

Couvertier (photo), a longtime LGBT activist who’s been broadcasting for more than three years, has other guests on tap, too. Included in the mix tonight is Zandra Conway, who will talk up her fundraiser on Thursday for the National Black Justice Coalition.

So tune in and take a listen. We’ll be chatting about Project Q, why we do what we do, the changing LGBT media scene in Atlanta and anything else Couvertier wants to quiz us on. We’re pretty sure we’re smarter than a fifth grader, but probably not smarter than Couvertier, who is a 62-year-old Puerto Rican mother, grandmother, lesbian, activist and retired corrections officer from New York City. So really, she could either kick our ass or nurture us to better behavior. Either way, it’ll be a lively discussion.

Couvertier recently dished about her show and stepping into the radio show:

I had never had any urge to be in broadcasting. (But) in all my volunteerism, I had a vision and I tried to pass that (vision) on to others so that they might go out and speak and teach and so on. My vision was and still is that folks have the information to make decisions and to be knowledgable about what affects them.

I really believe that we are making a difference. We (at Alternative Perspectives) are still relatively new and I learn everyday and have much more to learn. I have wonderful support, friends who are involved and helping to market (the program).
