Supporting this Public Radio project turns our microphones into real-world solutions.
It was no mistake that former President Obama challenged me to "do something to make a real difference in radio". I thought this challenge might be insurmountable, but that nudge from a President and times as they happen to be these days, foretold the obvious alchemy. Now, you can join us as we deliver our programming beyond mass-media into tangible education, truth-in-history, and real on-the-ground solution. - Cary Harrison
Cary Harrison (‘goharrison’) is the founder and driving force behind KPFK’s Secrets and Shadows. Cary was spawned from the Mayflower and Abe Lincoln on his mother’s side and signers of the Declaration on the other. As such, Cary strongly believes in democratizing radio and propelling a strong voice for multiculturalism, inclusion, and for free-flowing, accurate information.
He is a veteran of New York drive-time radio, CBS commentaries in Chicago, and a pioneer on SiriusXM with the first LGBT network morning show. He has decades of experience in Radio and social/political activism and his experience has equipped him with the skills and understanding to master the overlap between the two. Over the years, Cary has been involved with various radio networks, which have given him access to know and interview many of the nation’s leading political, social, and celebrity public figures.

What We Do
This Public Radio project is designed to link the names of LGBT+ Holocaust victims with official legal and scholastic history - providing schools, students, and historians with the evidentiary tools to reverse decades of cover-up and official denial. Our further quest to locate any surviving LGBT+ camp prisoners is the natural outcome of this already-successful mission. In a world that is only now learning to give voice to women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community, we are proud to be with you, participating in this new trajectory.
