Its sooooo nice to see Canberra’s gay radio station – 2CA – finally coming out of the closet. Reminds me of my own coming out as an awkward pimply-faced lad of 14 – I’ll never forget the look on mum’s face when I brought my boyfriend home for the first time!!!
It started a few months ago when I noticed 2CA playing all my favourite music. Then they sacked the straight DJs – both the girl and then the bloke who were on in the afternoons (good riddance). And they put a photo of a DJ with a limp wrist on their web site as a signal to us. And now they’re promoting my favourite musical Priscilla. And the other night my life partner heard the song Glad to be Gay from Tom Robinson’s classic Cabaret 79 album.
Good on you, 2CA. It takes lots of guts to come out but its just so lovely to have you with us as a dearly loved part of Canberra’s gay community.
