Lavender Hill is Lincoln, NE’s only (and as far as we know, the first) LGBTQA+ news and talk program. Hosted by Corwin and Phil on KZUM every Sunday at 11am Central, LH brings the listener news, views, and interviews from around the LGBTQA+ community with a focus on Lincoln and Omaha, NE. Only having a thirty minute time slot makes it difficult for Corwin and Phil to cover everything that they want, sometimes they have to gloss over things or just skip them all together. In this posting you will find links to some of the stories that they covered in this week’s edition, as well as one or two that were totally skipped. You can also visit the show’s Facebook page for additional news and opinion pieces, as well as videos and pictures.
