Proud Aloud, Wednesday 24 September 2014

 RadioActive 101 presents a new radio show featuring young people from Proud London, Dragon Hall’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender group. ‘Proud Aloud’ has features from eight young men and women aged 19 to 22 who identify themselves as being LGBT – another group that frequently goes unheard.

The theme the young people have chosen is the difficult theme of ‘Coming Out’ and includes:

  • ‘Queer Ear’, an agony aunt feature where young people are given information about important and relevant questions
  • A story about a young women’s experience of ‘Coming Out’, the issues she faced and how she took control of her situation
  • LGBT Anthems- a section where these young people choose tracks that have impacted upon them and discuss why they matter to them.

Enjoy the show and feed back ‘live’ during the broadcast via our social media listed below.

RadioActivists meet in Porto, 1-3 July 2014

RadioActivists from the UK, Germany, Malta, Romania and Portugal were together in Porto for an extremely productive partner meeting.  As well as getting through lots of project business and planning we also made an exciting live broadcast with the young people of Catapulta youth centre in Porto, Portugal.  The show used music to link together the young people by sharing issues common across the European partnership.  The music that included original recordings made by the young people covered topics that ranged all the way from history, girls in music, countering racism through to discussions on education.
