I just realized that it’s been over a year since DJ Fraz and I started Bash Back (Kingston, ON station CFRC 101.9 fm). When we started, all we wanted to do was to talk about queer shit that didn’t have to do with waving rainbow flags for gay marriage. We wanted to talk about real pain in our communities and the amazing work that people were doing that wasn’t being heard.
In that time span (including my brief stint as the Pride Day Coordinator for the station), we’ve been able to interview so many amazing people including Jordan from Montreal’s Pervers/Cite, Jessica Yee, Chris Vargas, Eric Stanley, Shaunga Tagore, Daniel Heath Justice, Alexis Mitchell, A.O and B. Steady of the Lost Bois, Scott Morgensen, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, and more recently, Elisha Lim. I feel like I’ve forgotten some people (DJ Fraz has all the memory)!! I feel so honoured to have been able to make radio featuring these amazing artists, activists, academics and writers.
Check out the website! It’s bare but we’re working on it.
Downloadable versions of some of the episodes are finally available!!!! Descriptions of the episodes will be available soooooooon!
Any ideas of who we should interview in 2012?
