The centre was officially launched by Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, Minister for Equality Martin Foley, and Mayor of the City of Port Phillip Louise Crawford and their speeches will be the subject of further podcasts on this channel. This podcast includes a short speech by Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and the extraordinary version of Over the Rainbow sung as the rainbow flag was finally raised over the centre by jazz singer, cabaret artiste & gender transcendent diva, Mama Alto.

Mama Alto is a jazz singer, cabaret artiste & gender transcendent diva. She is a transgender & queer person of colour who works with the radical potential of storytelling, strength in softness and power in vulnerability.

Visit the Victorian Pride Centre (which is, of course, JOY’s new home) website for more information an electronic guided tour of the building and much, much more.

NOTE: Apologies for the poor audio in parts as the microphone obviously could not cope with Mama’s extraordinary singing range!

IDAHOBIT marks the date in 1990 when the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. The reception was attended by hundreds of members of the LGBTI community, and their supporters, from across Victoria. Official proceedings commenced with The Hon. Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria, then followed by Minister for Equality, the Hon. Martin Foley MP & Gender and Sexuality Commissioner Ro Allen.
The speeches were followed by Victoria’s LGBTI community mingling with old friends and getting to know new ones over drinks across the halls and grounds of Government House.
JOY 94.9 would like to thank The Hon. Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria for the work her and her team have done to acknowledge this day, an important one on the LGBTI calendar.

In this podcast, the City of Port Phillip Mayor Bernadene Voss shares her thoughts on the announcement of the Pride Centre location and the councils support for the LGBTI community over the years.
The Minister for Equality the Hon. Martin Foley this morning made the announcement that the long awaited Victorian Pride Centre will be built in St Kilda, with the Andrews Labor Government announcing it will be based at 79-81 Fitzroy Street in St Kilda. An extensive consultation period was conducted with the LGBTI community to identify what was the important elements of a successful Pride Centre, particularly around location, and this feedback was factored in to the decision to choose St Kilda. The St Kilda site was successful as it was vacant and was offered on a freehold basis to the Victorian Pride Centre on behalf of the LGBTI community, provided it operates there for the next 20 years. The Labor Government has invested $15 million toward the Pride Centre which will be bigger than San Francisco’s LGBTI Community Centre.

It acknowledges the grief felt International Overdose Awareness Day which aims to raise awareness of drug overdose, and reduce the stigma associated with overdose deaths. It acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends of those who have died or been permanently injured as a result of overdose.
Today families of people lost to overdose, alcohol and other drug organisations and Members of Parliament came together at Parliament House to mark International Overdose Awareness Day.
In Victoria last year, there were 217 overdose deaths from illicit drugs and many more fr
om prescription drugs. Fatal overdose is preventable.
The Victorian Government invests more than $17 million each year in a range of initiatives to reduce the harm associated with drug use, including fatal overdoses.
Dean Beck went along to the events and caught up with the State Minister for Mental Health Martin Foley who announced the Government will invest in a peer-led networks trial in six locations across Melbourne. Peer workers will draw on their local knowledge and experience of drug use to identify those at risk of overdosing and provide peer support to people who may not to utilise mainstream supports.
The Government earlier this year announced the introduction of real-time prescription monitoring – a key recommendation of many coronial inquests. The real-time prescription monitoring system will be backed by a $30 million investment to help medical clinics, pharmacies and hospitals to identify prescription drug seekers earlier and before their addiction escalates into serious harm.
Dean also spoke with Fiona Patten MLC who was hands-on when needle exchanges began over 30 years ago and he caught up with Finn, the founder of International Overdose Awareness Day.

LEARN MORE Each year in Melbourne as part of National Youth Week Minus18 presents the Same Sex Gender Diverse Formal, with more than 500 students attending from Melbourne, Victoria and around Australia. This unique event provides the opportunity for same sex attracted, gender diverse, and intersex young people aged 21 years and under to attend a formal dance with a same sex partner, allies and friends in a safe and strictly drug and alcohol free environment.
JOY 94.9, in partnership with Minus18 and SYN Media, are proud to present this highlights package from the 2016 formal.
Special thanks to the team who recorded these interviews: Simon Chitre, Hannah Whelan, Shay Bedel, Michael Kean, Cassandra Wright, and the show’s producer and editor, Ti Butler.
This program features music from Melbourne band Ghost In The Machine, who performed at the Formal. You can find them online at SoundCloud and Facebook. Their new EP Seasons is out soon.
This project was made possible through funding from the Department of Health and Human Services 2016 National Youth Week Grants. It was made possible with the support of Minus18 and can be heard on stations around the country on the Community Radio Network.
