Queer Radio

Blair Martin, Brody Hayes & Jack Jones

Wednesday

8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

The world's longest continuously running diverse in gender & sexuality radio show. News, views, & music for/by the DiGS community.

We respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners & Custodians of the country on which we create Queer Radio, the Turrbal & Jagerah people of the Yugerah nation paying deepest respect to elders past, present and to come. We acknowledge that their sovereignty over this land & waters of and around this land were never ceded. Always was - always will be theirs.

The award winning Queer Radio show is a magazine style show, dealing with specific topics and invited guests. Queer Radio is male-oriented, but not exclusive. Presenting relevant music, guests, news, views and interviews - as well as discussions of sex, sexuality and life in general, relevant to the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans Queer Intersex Pansexual-Polyamorous Asexual Non-Binary & 2Spirits / Diverse in Gender & Sexuality (DiGS) community

Queer Radio (along with Dykes On Mykes) turns 31 in 2023 - the longest continuously running DiGS radio program in the world. Queer Radio will continue to offer a voice for the DiGS community in Brisbane and South East Qld with news, views, info and music that is queer or queer affirming.  Queer Radio Brisbane can be an important part of your queer life - whether you are one of the fabulous rainbow peeps or one of our much loved straight allies.

Access the show live on 4ZZZ 102.1FM or 4ZZZ DAB/DAB+ in Brisbane, via the Community Radio Plus app, live web streaming from the 4ZZZ website, or on-demand from this page for up to six weeks from the date of broadcast. 

Our story

Since 1978 4ZZZ has continually presented programs in support of the broader queer identifying community. On 30th September 1992 the weekly lesbian and gay program "Gay Waves" changed in both format and name. It became a cycle every three weeks (Wednesdays 6-9pm) of "Queer Radio" for men, "Queer Radio" for LGBT's and "The Lesbian Show" by and for women. The Queer Radio shows were to be magazine style, dealing with specific topics and invited guests. The Lesbian Show changed its name to Dykes On Mykes in the mid-90's. 4ZZZ allocated each show a weekly 2 hour slot in August 2002.

We live blog/update on FB & (formerly know as) Twitter social media platforms during our show with links to our guests, discussion topics, photos from the studio and events plus the music videos of the tunes we play.

In November 2013, Queer Radio was both surprised and deeply humbled to be chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all". 

At the 53rd Annual Queen's Birthday Ball & Community Awards, presented by the Brisbane Pride Festival on June 8th 2014, Blair Martin was given the Lifetime Achievment Award for his 20 plus years of dedication, commitment and passion in serving the Brisbane LGBTQIPA /DiGS Community, and has been nominated in the Media Personality category of those awards from 2014 to 2019

Blair was also  nominated in the "LGBTI Broadcaster and Presenter" category for the inaugural Australian LBGTI Awards 2017.

Now More Than Ever - NRW 2024

QUEERIE: What steps are you taking to advance reconcilliation with First Nations and Sea Peoples of (so-called) Australia?

Our annual National Reconcilliation Week episode with guest co-host Michael (a former Queer Radio team member and proud First Nations gay man!) Michael's dropped a load of wonderful tracks by FN artists to share with you all tonight.

Guests include Mitch Medcalf and Archie Arsenic - Mitch is the current Mr Bear Qld and they are running "Top This Sundays" on Sunday (of course) at the Sporties to raise funds for Mitch's Australasian title shot.

Two wonderful friends of the show - Poppy Starr and Dirty Versachi are BOTH releasing new tracks TODAY! Poppy came in to the studios to chat with Brody, Michael and Blair; and Ven X aka Dirty Versachi had a confab with Blair earlier in the week about "Pumped Up Like A Pony"
