PX Whanau is a special 16-episode podcast designed by and for the LGBTIQA+ Pasifika community providing support, accurate information, and real-life experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. As LGBTIQA+ people we also need to protect our ‘chosen’ whanau (family) in the Pacific Island community.
A proactive approach is needed to be able to engage with our queer Pasifika community, and this specifically tailored podcast is to help alleviate the loss of connection and promote a healthy well-informed engagement with our people.
Our episodes were broadcast on Out of the Pan on Sunday at 12.30 pm.
PX Whanau is presented by the PacifiqueX collective on Wurundjeri Land in the studios of 3CR in Fitzroy, Narrm (Melbourne), and is funded by the Victorian Government, Multicultural Communications Outreach Program.
Theme music "What About Me?" is performed and produced by V!NA.
