Ofcom licenses first Gay station

The first FM radio licence for a gay radio station has been awarded today, as Manchester gains two more community radio stations.

Gaydio, which has been running RSL broadcasts for three years, has been waiting a year since submitting an application to Ofcom due to lack of frequencies.

The second licence award in Manchester goes to Unity Radio, which will provide young local broadcasters with mentors from the local music and media industry, as well as building partnerships with education, training and employment services.

It will also feature black dance music such as garage and dubstep.

Gaydio will target and promote the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities of central Manchester, creating awareness and challenging homophobia and homophobic practices.
