As we are coming up on the holiday season, it seems as those the lovely ladies of RightOutTV are eager to give back to the community. So Marlee Walchuk and Tully Callender were excited to announce the winners of the 2014 RightOutTV Music & Video Awards. They enlisted several of the talented members of the LGBT music community to put on a wonderful show for the deserving winners. Several of the artists nominated and classed out in the video have already been featured on the blog, and I am excited to be introduced to new talent. Click play, and watch and enjoy the show.
Marlee and Tully developed RightOutTV to help LGBT artists with promotion, as a way of giving back to the community. The couple are also a musical duo, making up Sugarbeach. They were kind enough to ask me to participate in the awards for the last few years as a judge. To learn more about RightOutTV, visit the RightOutTV website. You can also 'follow' them on Twitter, and 'like' them on Facebook. In the coming weeks, I will showcase the winners on the blog. And I will include the list of winners below.
