After five years on the air at a university/community radio station, and having been in transition for eight months now, I am ready to take flight ... on the air. Not take flight from my show, but rather take flight on it. On Sunday, October 2, I will be coming out, as DJ V, on the air, to my audience. And like almost all of my episodes since the fall of 2006, this one will be podcast for posterity.
It's very exciting! It's also unnerving, as I know that I'm inching ever close to disclosing my transition to my family. So "taking flight" is an apt description as I will be taking a huge leap this fall and will leave the security of the ground beneath me.
