One of my 2020 goals was to do a radio course with my local public radio BayFM. Unfortunately due to the year being hijacked by Covid 19, this didn’t happen. My highlight was being invited to speak on this station about mental health in the lead up to Christmas and especially its impact on the LGBTIQ+ community.
I am very grateful to the amazing work in this area being undertaken by Tony Tranter and Jasper Manfield as well as the support of BayFM 100.3 in their radion program and podcast Rainbow Conversations on BayFM. They are amazing humans and made my first foray into radio so much fun.
Mental health is not selective, it affects everyone in the community. Christmas can be an added factor in isolation especially this year. Check-in on your friends and loved ones and offer support.
