We are super excited to announce the new live stream variety show KERRIE & DOLLY’S HOUSE PARTY ” hosted by Kerrie Stanley and Dolly Diamond, and launching on our freshly video streaming service JOY TV! – This collaboration is supported by the Victorian Government.



Save the date! – launching 23rd of April: KERRIE & DOLLY’S HOUSE PARTY will be streamed on JOY TV on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7:30pm (AEST)


The Victorian Government is funding the immediate rollout of priority initiatives to support the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ Victorians impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, finding new ways of supporting each other to keep our communities connected. “We are a strong community, and we are healthier and stronger together. LGBTIQ communities thrive on supporting each other and we need that now more than ever. We welcome funds from a government that not only recognises but prioritises this.”, says Victorian Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality, Ro Allen.

This funding will increase the capacity of JOY 94.9 as a multi media organisation, to launch JOY TV, a video streaming service using platforms such as YouTube and social media channels. KERRIE & DOLLY’S HOUSE PARTY is proudly the first collaboration to be streamed on JOY TV.

Now more than ever, the role of independent community media is so important in keeping our community connected, informed and entertained. The launch of JOY TV with this important show builds on the great work of Bent TV and other organisations, broadcasting video content created by community for community.”, says CEO of JOY Ange Barry.



The show aims to bring a sense of the LGBTIQA+ and allied communities into viewer’s homes, as well as to emphasise hope and optimism during these challenging times. The format will include songs, performances and segments, along with updates and interviews with key LGBTIQA+ figures all by video link or as pre-recorded pieces. It will also regularly feature a number of recognised Victorian LGBTIQA+ community members including Mama Alto (jazz singer/cabaret artist), Dean Arcuri (cabaret artist/JOY broadcaster), Sexy Galexy (drag king/comedian), and many others.

It’s time to switch over to something that is community based, informative, interactive and a whole lot of fun,” says comedy-cabaret icon and host, Dolly Diamond. “We’re here to take the LGBTIQA+ community’s mind off the challenges we are facing right now. And we certainly won’t be forgetting our allies!”, Dolly added.

Dolly Diamond and I are excited to bring you all the variety you can handle, not once, but twice a week,” said co-host, Kerrie Stanley. “We believe in accentuating the positive so we will focus on good news stories and subjects, especially ones that make us all laugh”, Kerrie added.
