Sat 2 Jun 2007 In: New Zealand Daily News

The Wellington Lesbian Community programme is now available as an on demand ‘podcast' from the Access Radio 783AM website. The weekly Lesbian Community programme has been providing a space for lesbians to ‘meet' and learn about/contribute to our community for over twenty years, and is now available for interested listeners to download anywhere in the world. Aimed at a full diversity of lesbians/gay women/queer women/takatapui women etc (“ie however anyone wants to label themselves”), it is also listened to by others who enjoy the music and news on the programme. The latest episode features Our Bar co-owner Ruth Post talking about her next big trip overseas. The next episode is scheduled for 10am on Sunday 3rd June. “We run via a collective of some twenty women, often operating in pairs, so a large range of voices are heard – and we warmly welcome new lesbian broadcasters”, says coordinator Prue Hyman (contact “Each week we advertise community events – and help people find flats and flatmates etc – and play music. The rest is up to each presenter.” The programme regularly brings listeners Aotearoa and worldwide news of interest to lesbians, lgbti and general political news and comment, interviews about past or future cultural and sports events – for example dances, film festivals, art shows, international Lesbian Day, Gay Games, books at the lesbian library.
