Dykes on Mykes
- Wednesday 7-9pm
Lesbian news, views, music and general bollocks with Davina, KK & Ruth
Dykes on Mykes 7 – 9pm Wednesday evenings features news, views and music for and about the queer women’s and lesbian community in Brisbane. We agitate to end homophobia, educate about issues facing lesbian and queer women, and organise to promote lesbian and queer women’s events locally, nationally and internationally.
We have regular guests and specifically play a diverse range of music featuring female vocalists that isn’t heterosexually identified. We promote and interview artists, writers, performers, health and community workers as well as those involved in the music industry, we are also all active within the queer community, from a diverse range of backgrounds.
Since 1978 4ZZZ has continually presented programs in support of the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender community. On 30th September 1992 the weekly lesbian and gay program "Gay Waves" changed in both format and name. It became a cycle every three weeks (Wednesdays 6-9pm) of "Queer Radio" for men, "Queer Radio" for LGBTs and "The Lesbian Show" by and for women.
The Queer Radio shows were to be magazine style, dealing with specific topics and invited guests. The Lesbian Show changed its name to Dykes On Mykes in the mid-90's. 4ZZZ allocated each show a weekly 2 hour slot in August 2002.
