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".
Palaszczuk demands fair share for NDIS
Under the current NDIS agreement, states receive only a quarter of the levy raised by the higher Medicare levy originally put in place to fund the NDIS.
Premier Palaszczuk says the full amount of funds raised by states should be returned to states to ensure a quick NDIS roll out.
The premier will be meeting with other state governments on Friday for the Council of Australian Governments meeting where she is hoping to form consensus with other states on how to respond to federal-state funding.
