Sexy, sincere and playful – The Salon

27/08/2014

salon1

Bush Radio’s new programme; The Salon is a sexy, sincere and playful hangout session between three friends that discuss the Queer Capetonian experience. Moving through LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) content, introducing new queer voices that laugh, play and get serious about difficult topics to broaden the perspectives that restrict the human rights of LGBTI community with compassion and acceptance.

We are hoping the audience includes everyone within the LGBTI community as well as those that stand outside of it with curiosity or disapproval.

The programme is designed to break down stereotypes and negative ideas about the LGBTI community, and aims to shatter negative misconceptions by including those that have them into its audience. There is no us vs. them, rather a movement towards an us, that is all inclusive regardless of sexual orientation.

The Salon is hosted by Myles Heneke, Sarah Summers and Sizo Mahlangu.

Tune into The Salon, Wednesdays from 8pm on 89.5FM or via www.bushradio.co.za

For more information on The Salon or any other programmes on 89,5FM drop an mail to the Programme Integrator
