Derek Hartley

Co-host, 'Derek and Romaine' on SiriusXM OutQ 109; author, 'When Nightlife Falls'

Since 2003 Derek Hartley has been the host, along with Romaine Patterson, of the GLAAD Award-winning SiriusXM Radio show Derek and Romaine, emphasis on the "has been." The show airs weekdays from 6 to 10 p.m. ET, exclusively on SiriusXM OutQ 108, and is wildly inappropriate. Prior to joining SiriusXM, he was a columnist for PlanetOut. He is a major proponent of recycling, as evidenced by his two memoirs: Colonnade: A Life in Columns (Spacuna Publishing, 2009) and When Nightlife Falls (Spacuna Publishing, 2011). And he writes a semi-annual blog, entitled Initial Public Offerings, chronicling his nighttime adventures, because he is his own favorite subject. Obviously he is single and resides in New York.
