RightOutTV 2011 Music Video Awards Winners

Written by 

Right out tv 2011 is the web’s first global 24-hour streaming video channel and promotional website for Out Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender & Intersex (LGBTI) artists.

During the past month, RightOutTV’s hand-picked judges have been busy scoring the final nominated music videos and the results reflect an impressive array of talent in 13 different categories.

Winning artists represent the United States, Israel, Australia, England and Austria, making this a truly global contest.

"Many of the judges reported that it was difficult picking just one winner from such an incredible pool of talent," says Tully Callender, video awards co-producer.

"It made us beam with pride knowing that many of the artists were being exposed to these industry professionals for the first time and they were completely impressed…but we knew they would be," adds Marlee Walchuk, Tully’s wife and the other half of the RightOutTV production team.

The Awards Announcement presentation featuring some of the nominated artists is posted on
