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.

Suicide Bomber kills in Northeast Nigeria
The attack had reportedly targeted people who were on their way to the Sunday markets.
An angry mob later prevented emergency workers from reaching the remains of the bomber.
While no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, Islamist militia group Boko Haram has used similar methods in the past.
Boko Haram’s insurgency against Nigeria has destabilised much of Africa’s biggest economy and violence has spilled over into neighbouring countries Chad and Cameroon.
