Gay Fairfax was a public
access cable television program produced and originally
cablecast in Fairfax County, Virginia. It was one
of the first all-volunteer gay and lesbian newsmagazine
television programs in the country to focus on
a non-urban area, specifically a politically conservative
suburb of Washington, D.C.
The program was notable in that it brought together
a wide variety of volunteers, covered a host of
issues and cultural activities, attracted
a great deal of media attention, earned many awards,
spawned many more television programs and projects
-- and changed many lives.
This site is dedicated to hundreds of
volunteers who devoted themselves to producing
television programming by, for, and of lesbian
and gay citizens in the Washington, DC, area. Please
share your own personal reflection on Gay
Fairfax or its legacy.
And remember to keep the pride alive!
