Radio Today Outspoken, the South African LGBT radio show, has been nominated as a finalist in the MTN Radio Awards in the Community Project Category.
Outspoken is the only radio programme in Africa that focuses on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) issues.
The show is hosted by Frank Malaba, Simone Heradien and Yolan Moodley who said that they “…are entirely over the moon, no in fact over the universe with this nomination”.
Earlier this month, the show was lauded for launching an African version of the “It Gets Better” project in South Africa, offering a message of hope to LGBT people.
The programme broadcasts from the Radio Today studios in Johannesburg, and airs every Monday, between the hours of 8 and 10pm.
It can be found on the AM 1485 frequency in Johannesburg as well as on the pay channel DSTV audio 169 which broadcasts to eight Anglophone African countries. It can also be accessed internationally via live audio streaming on www.1485.org.za.
The winners in the MTN Radio Awards will be announced at the Sandton Convention Centre on the 9th of April in a black tie event.
