Gaydio plants time capsule

Community radio station Gaydio have completed their most recent temporary RSL broadcast by burying a time capsule in the heart of the gay village in Manchester. Sackville Gardens was chosen as the venue because it is also home to the beacon of hope and Alan Turning memorial statue.

Programme controller Toby Whitehouse said ‘throughout our broadcast, we tried to reflect the fact that it was LGBT history month, and I the idea of capturing LGBT life as it is today seemed the perfect way to close the station.’

During their broadcast they asked presenters, guests and the public what items they’d put in a time casual to show future generation exactly what LGBT life is like in 2007, with the most appropriate items placed in the capsule. Items chosen included club flyers, magazine articles on future development of the gay village, an HIV awareness ribbon and photographs of significant LGBT events in Manchester including Pride, Queer up North and the Red and Wild festivals. Also included were several recordings of Gaydio second broadcast, which ended on March 4th.
