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".
Ruptured South Australian pipeline leaves 9000 homes and business without gas for a week
Although welding the new pipe was expected to be finished this Thursday, it needs at least 24 hours to cure before any gas can start flowing.
With up to 40mm of rain forecasted for the region on both Thursday and Friday, testing the new line may be hampered causing further delays.
After Sunday’s pipeline rupture, more than 5000 households and businesses in Port Pirie as well as 4000 in Whyalla have been without gas for most of this week.
