Originally from Brooklyn, NY where she was a city corrections officer she has been a part of Atlanta, Georgia’s LGBTQ scene since the mid-1990s. She has volunteered at WRFG 89.3 FM, a non-profit community radio station, since 2002. She was the founder, producer and host of “Alternative Perspectives,” an LGBT radio show that airs on the community-owned and operated station from 2006 until 2017.“Alternative Perspectives” started from a notion that LGBTQ news was important news and that our voices together could get a message out to the public — to the folks that we work with, play with, shop with, live next to, and go to school with. Her energy, compassion, insightfulness, and hard work has been an incredible asset in the fight for LGBTQ equality. A recipient of many awards since retiring Betty keeps her eye on local and national political shenanigans, the LGBTQ community and discovering more alternative perspectives as she travels about the country in her RV with her dogs and that trademark fedora.
