Virgin Radio Network Launch PopUp Pride Radio


We always enjoy reporting on an expansion of the LGBTQ media. With magazines in decline generally, it's nice that some of the longest standing queer titles are still going. And podcasts, videocasts and internet sites are adding more LGBTQ content daily. This week, we are also pleased to report that a four month pop up radio network will be available on smart devices, online and in the London area on digital DAB. Virgin Radio, who were one of the first national commercial stations on British soil back in 1993, are now kicking off a summer of spin off broadcasting with Virgin Radio Pride. ThNews e service will carry on throughout the traditional Pride season and feature broadcasters such as Tia Kofi, Matt Cain, Emma Goswell, Debbie Ryan, Phil Clifton, Shivani Dave, Vicki Blight and Stephen Sullivan. The music will be dance and pop from the last two decades, but crucially, the station also aims to feature interviews and discussions on issues of importance to the national LGBTQ communities. The station says that it will also feature charity promotions for LGBTQ groups doing amazing work for our communities, including The Food Chain, UKAIDS Memorial Quilt and All About Trans. ShoutOut's correspondent Terry said “All the LGBTQ media is important right now as we resist the far right press in Britain and their attempt to splinter the gay movement away from our traditional trans allies, creating and exploiting fear and division. Together we can show that we are united, strong and have the best music. Keep supporting LGBTQ media”.
