Who We Are

Founded in 1987, Outlook Video is a non-profit membership organization of people who are interested in all aspects of video production for the GLBT communuty, with experience levels ranging from amateur to professional. While our member base is mostly Gay and Lesbian, we also welcome people who are Bisexual, Transgendered, and Heterosexual.

Our show is recorded monthly in the studios of CreaTV Channel 15, in San Jose, California. Outlook Video cablecasts throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, and a few places outside of California. Please see the "Air Dates" page for the complete list.

Committed to increasing the number of creative voices in the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community, members work on all aspects of the show, such as producing field reports, scripting, anchoring, camera work, studio production, directing, editing, and post production.

The scope of topics and events covered by Outlook Video reflect the diversity of our community. Regular show segments of Outlook Video include reviews and clips of Gay/Lesbian/Transgender films, studio interviews highlighting Gays and Lesbians in the performing, literary, and visual arts, interviews with health professionals, commentaries on current issues, "mini" fashion shows, and various field reports. Field report projects have included Gay Pride events throught California, Casto Street Fair, Folsom Street Fair, the Bay Area Regional Gay Rodeo, 1993 March on Washington, Gay Games, Stonewall 25 and Gay Pride festivals in other countries.

From 1990 to 1998, Outlook Video was an operating unit of the Jon Sims Center for the Arts. In 1998, we switched the affiliation to the Billy DeFrank Lesbian and Gay Community Center.
