Dublin Digital Radio will broadcast, Queering the Airwaves, from Wednesday, June 26 to Saturday, June 29 to celebrate, Pride 2024.

Dublin Digital Radio‘s Queering the Airwaves: 50 Years of Resistance initiative seeks to highlight LGBTQ+ voices, organisations, and activists while also delving into the Dublin community’s rich history of resistance and resilience.

Dublin Pride will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2024, marking the first Pride demonstration in Dublin on June 27, 1974, organised by the Sexual Liberation Movement, which was founded in 1973. As ddr celebrates 50 years of Pride, they will reflect on the movement’s origins, resist corporatisation and co-option, and refocus the ongoing struggle for LGBTQ+ liberation.

Through an open call, Dublin Digital Radio scheduled over 25 hours of LGBTQ+ programming, including mixes to revolutionise the dance floor, investigations of queer histories, programmes envisioning radical futures, and much more.

Queering the Airwaves Programmer, Shane O’Callaghan, said: “The wide variety of shows that were submitted as part of QTA this year is a testament to the incredible diversity of the queer community and queer experience. It’s vital that we continue to elevate queer voices and support our community. 50 years of Pride has offered us the opportunity to take stock of the progress that has been made and also acknowledge the work that is still to be done. Much of QTA’s programming reflects this sentiment with explorations of queer history, political expression through punk music alongside moments of queer elation and joy.”
