Queer Radio

Blair Martin, Sam Taylor & Jack Jones


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 30 in 2022 - 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 & 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.

Winter is comin'

QUEERIE: How do you get ready for "winter"?

Tomorrow is the official, by the calendar, start of winter - though for many people "winter" in Meanjin/Brisbane is a mild to warm summer's day elsewhere (however, as ABBA once sang, "If It Wasn't For The Nights"... and those westerly winds...brrrrr)

To be all snuggly warm and toasty Blair (in the Studio) and Jack (out on Remote Studio doing socials) have invited Jules Herbert & Rach Vickary of the new event out at Ipswich Queerswich, which is on this Sunday; then shivering away in Naarm/Melbourne is Leroy Mcqueen whose first "proper" solo single - "Stepping Out" - has stepped out and up and allowed Leroy to open up about being non-binary/queer and using alt. country as the genre to tell their story; and in the second hour - fresh from THEIR coronation (no, not HMK) it's  Moose Vespertine - Mr Sporties 2023!
