4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".

Transsexualism is currently classified as a mental disorder under the World Health Organisation International Classification of DIseases. A number of petitions on change.org has called for this change. Michelle Diamond, an activist fighting for the rights and wellbeing of the LGBTI community heads the Australian petition. She joins Jenna Talackova, Transgender beauty queen to battle with the World Health Organisation.
