The new programming grid has gone live with many new specialist programs to cater to the diverse LGBTI communities.

Check out some of the new programs going to air:

  • 2300 Monday – Urban Dreaming with Sir Rummy and Miss Ellaneous
    After co-presenting with Ande K on Black, White and Rainbow for a couple of months, Suri Bin-Saad (Sir Rummy) is taking the reins on his own program communicating diversity and empowerment in the arts from indigenous and non-indigenous communities. Suri joins JOY after doing radio in The Kimberley, and is an artist and dancer in his own right (and was even in the top 14 of So You Think You Can Dance in 2008!!). Miss Ellaneous is one of this country’s finest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander drag queens who’s just moved from Darwin. Welcome Miss Ellaneous!
  •  2000 Tuesday – Beyond the Binary with Rory Blundell
    Rory explores gender diversity with this brand new program. He’ll be joined by a special guest each week to go ‘beyond the binary’. Transpositions takes a break as Michelle moves to Family Matters and Megan takes a JOY vacation.
  • 2100 Tuesday – Our House with David Gale, Paul McClure and Russ Masterton
    David Gale (The Informer, Jess and Mitch’s newsreader), Paul McClure (JOY radio graduate) and Russ Masterton (Escape Pod) explore real estate for our communities, each week talking to a specialized guest to pick their brains with tips to share, information on how we live and practical solutions to how to put a roof over your head. Keep an ear out for their ‘gaybourhood of the week’!
  • 2200 Tuesday – Triple Bi-Pass with Anthony, Kristina and Ruby
    Improving bi visibility, Anthony (Well Well Well) and Kristina (media practitioner and voice actor) along with Ruby (The Informer) will “uplift and empower bisexuals by making it clear that we think that they should be open about their sexuality and celebrate who they are. We will make young bisexuals realise that they are not alone. We will inform the LGTIQ community about bi people and their fabulosity.”
  •  0100 Wednesday – Our Mosh Pit with JJ
    Adding to our line-up profiling various metal, hardcore, punk and scene bands, JJ (Jayden, recent JOY training grad) brings more of a music genre we don’t have much of! Our Mosh Pit (hardcore and metal) will follow Stevie’s Get Loud (rock) on Tuesday nights.
