International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia
Discrimination, exclusion and violence against sexual and gender minorities are a source of concern. Deeply rooted in their communities and agents of social change, community radio stations play a role of education and advocacy in raising public awareness on the importance of openness to difference. In addition, these radios are working to ensure fair representation of gender and minorities on the airwaves to promote inclusion and tolerance for all.

Journée internationale de lutte contre l'homophobie, la transphobie et la biphobie
La discrimination, l’exclusion et la violence dont sont victimes les minorités sexuelles et de genre sont, encore aujourd’hui, une source de préoccupations. Proches de leurs communautés et agentes de changements sociaux, les radios communautaires jouent un rôle d’éducation et de sensibilisation de premier ordre dans la sensibilisation des publics à l’importance de l’ouverture à la différence.

Día Internacional contra la Homofobia, la Transfobia y la Bifobia
Discriminación, exclusión y violencia sexual y de género son para las minorías, incluso hoy en día, una fuente de preocupación. Profundamente arraigadas en sus comunidades y siendo agentes de cambio social, las estaciones de radio comunitarias desempeñan un papel en la educación y promocionando la concientización pública sobre la importancia de la apertura a la diferencia.

  • Radio Panik : LGBTI en Serbie

     
    00:00

    Le samedi 17 mai, c'est la Journée mondiale de lutte contre l'homophobie et la transphobie. Depuis 2005, cette journée mobilise l’opinion publique autour des problèmes liés à l’homophobie et à la transphobie. La date du 17 mai a été sélectionnée afin de commémorer la décision, datant de 1990, de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) de retirer l’homosexualité de la liste des troubles du comportement. Le thème de la liberté d'expression pour les minorités sexuelles et de genre a été choisi par les militants du monde entier comme un domaine de préoccupation prioritaire qui mérite toute notre attention lors de cette journée particulière. Pour l'occasion, Radio Panik rediffuse ce reportage de la rédaction. Bonne écoute.

    00:00

    The puckishly whimsical life and times of poet and film maker James Broughton is the topic of this edition of Radio Curious in a visit with Stephen Silha, the producer and director of “Big Joy,” a biographical film of the life and times of James Broughton.    Broughton believed that in order to live an authentic life we each should follow our own weird. He says: “I don’t know what the left is doing said the right hand. But it looks fascinating.” And: “I may be infecting the whole body said the Head but they’ll never amputate me.” Big Joy” will be shown at the Mendocino Film Festival, Saturday, May 31, at 5:30 p.m.   Stephen Silha and I visited by phone from his home near Seattle, Washington on Mother’s Day, 2014.  He began our conversation by telling us what drew him to make a film about his friend James Broughton.

  • Radio Curious : Interview with Pr. Robert Dole

     
    00:00

    One man’s personal experience in recognizing his homosexuality, is the subject of this program.  Until the mid 1970s homosexuality was considered by many people to be a mental disorder and/or a crime, as it still is in some personal and political belief systems.  Homosexual people sometimes were housed in mental institutions, given medication and suffered an array of treatment methods, including shock therapy and other forms of behavior modification. Professor Robert Dole, our guest in this edition of Radio Curious, was one of many individuals subjected to behavior modification of that period in time. In his book, “How to Make a Success of Your Schizophrenia,” he explains how the “treatment” he endured as an attempt to alter his homosexual preference made him schizophrenic.  His personal memoir describes his experiences growing up in the 1960s as a gay man, his institutionalization at the McLean Hospital in Massachusetts, the schizophrenia that consumed him as a result of his treatment, his self-led recovery,

  • Radio Curious : Interview with Jennifer Finney Boylan

     
    00:00

    “She’s Not There:A Life in Two Genders,” by Jennifer Finney Boylan, is a book about a man who became a woman.For as long as he could remember, James Boylan felt he was in the wrong body.Spending his childhood playing ‘Girl Planet’ (where the air turned anyone who breathed into a girl) and in adolescent and young adult years dressing up in women’s clothing, James was convinced that the only thing that could save him was the love of the right woman. When he fell in love and got married, he threw out the women’s clothes and pledged his life to manhood. But being a loving husband, a responsible father, a respected professor, and an acclaimed writer couldn’t stop the feeling that he was, despite physical evidence to the contrary, a woman. With the unfailing support of his family, friends and several doctors, James became Jenny. The book Jennifer Finney Boylan recommends is “Huckleberry Finn,” by Mark Twain. This program was originally Broadcast: September 30, 2003
