R.I.P QUEER OUT WEST .. 02 December 2001 to 19 December 2016
All good things must come to an end in December Queer Out West 89.3Fm Will celebrate 15 years on the radio supporting the LGBTQI community of western Sydney now produced by Beverly Buttercup that took on the role in 2011 I (Beverly) has decided not to reapply for the program in 2017 this will see the end of the program in its current format with last program going to air on 19 December 2016 . ” I realise something I’m trying to hold on to things that I should’ve let go off a long time ago considering I went into semi retirement from Drag in 2013 and no longer in the loop ” So I will let it go in December (and do something different next year like relax and put myself first) so being a little dyslexic and relying on other people that let you down !! it is just no longer practical I cannot do the show by myself or put a show together and then end up being in the studio by myself just too stressful so much has changed in the studio and in my life and then there’s the politics !!! I need to let it go and give someone else the opportunity to step up and create a new program for the LGBTQI community in 2017 so if you’re interested in putting a program together and can volunteer around six hours a week plus training course plus meetings and you have to become a member of the co-op .. So all you have to do is contact the co-op of 2GLF – Fm 89.3 Community radio for more info : firstname.lastname@example.org That have supported many LGBTQI programs over the years like ; The Out West And Proud Program , Lesbians On Air and Queer Out West .. So you have a couple of months to come up with an idea apply for a program and do training if you’re excepted . I would like to say a special thank you to all the current presenters for giving up a few hours a month and come into the studio or participate in the program ; Nikki Facchin , LayDee KinMee , Fifi Fo’Fum , Pandora Box & Jeremy Smith. Plus a special thank you to Gavin Prendergast (ACON) , Rob Manser (G2G) & David Watson Formally from (Mardi Gras) And all special guest DJs that of come out to the studios in Liverpool : Dj Justin Scott , Dj Victoria Anthony , Dj Ray Isaac , Dj Dome DeSousa, DJ Anvi ..
