Mission

Dyke TV/DTV Productions launched in 1993, and operates from multi-racial, multi-generational, all-inclusive queer perspectives. Those traditionally underrepresented in mainstream and even LGBT pogramming are especially encouraged to participate, including lower-income women, seniors, youth, and the transgender/gender queer community. The one-hour show is comprised of 3-15 minute segments in a news magazine format, and covers issues important to the volunteers who produce them, as well as to our larger queer audience. Dyke TV also operates a low-cost media resource center where those women can learn from experienced mentors to produce digital videos. DTV remains one of the only places in the country where a dyke can walk in, learn about video production, use advanced video equipment for free (shooting for the show) or at low cost, and put what she finds important onto the screen.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Dyke TV operates two programs: the show and the media resource center. The show is broadcast on public cable access in New York City, Philadelphia, Greensboro North Carolina, and Manchester New Hampshire, and nationally via satellite cable on Free Speech TV, with a combined subscriber base of 4 million people. In addition, the show streams online at www.dyketv.org. Dyke TV receives viewer e-mails and calls from all over the country, especially from rural areas where queer women are more isolated.

At the media resource center, we hold monthly digital video production and post-production workshops at reduced rates that are open to anyone. Once a queer woman (including trans people) complete a workshop, they are qualified to begin producing their own segments for our show. These volunteer producers may also use all of our equipment for free when producing for Dyke TV.

We rent out our equipment and post-production suites to independent queer and non-queer media professionals at low rates, and we provide low-cost transer and dubbing services.

Finally, we have rolling internships that offer queer women the opportunity to receive our classes for free with every 75 hours of work.
