New Book Challenges LGBTQ Appalachian Stereotypes And We Listen To Our Song Of The Week, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, a new book called “Y’all Means All: Emerging Voices Queering Appalachia” is challenging the stereotypes and marginalization faced by LGBTQ Appalachians. It shows how the public perception is changing. Mason Adams has the story.

Also, in this show, Oklahoma’s John Fullbright brings us our Mountain Stage Song of the Week. We listen to his performance of “Poster Child” from his newest album in eight years, The Liar.
