In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".

The decision could mean Indigenous people will not be able to properly farewell their ancestors and ensure their passage into the next world.
Brisbane Line reporter Steven Riggall spoke with Bob Weatherall, Chair of the Centre for Indigenous Cultural Policy.
