India’s first LGBTQ radio show ‘GAYDIO’

New Delhi [India]: Gaydio, India’s first LGBTQ show, hosted by LGBTQ activist Harish Iyer, releases on Radio ISHQ 104.8 FM.

The show not only aims to disclose people’s narrative about their struggles of coming out of the closet; but will also showcase experiences and anecdotes of individuals who have taken a different step in life.

As India’s first LGBTQ show, GAYDIO will act as a platform to bring out different voices and spread the message to the nation that it’s time for the people to reveal their hidden selves.

Speaking about the show, Harish Iyer said, “My intent is to keep it as inclusive and personal as possible. Radio is a very personal medium. The fact that it is a sound only medium makes it a more universal and a more accessible medium. I am sure initiatives like these would give the listener a better understanding of gender and sexuality. This show would focus on the lives of LGBTQ people and understand that we are all the same and that #LoveIsLove without tags.”

Adding to it, Shivangini Jajoria, National Head – Operations, said, “As a station we always want to provide exceptional content to our listeners, with Gaydio we want to reinstitute the fact that Love is not conditional to sexuality. We as a station finally want to hear the unheard voices of the nation.” (ANI)
