About In Ya Face

In Ya Face is one of the longest running queer radio shows in Australia and has been on-air since 1992.

The program explores LGBTIQA+ and current socio-political issues with interviews, music, and commentary. We speak with people engaged in stimulating and provocative projects in queer, feminist, and activist communities - whether it be political or social activism, advocacy, the arts, and personal narratives.

We give queer perspectives on local and international current affairs, social issues, and politics, with an intersectional approach. We play eclectic tracks and love the quirk factor.


This show is created and produced on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung people of the Kulin Nation. We pay respect to Elders, past, present, and emerging, and acknowledge the continued resilience of First Nation peoples in the face of ongoing colonisation and settlement. We acknowledge sovereignty was never ceded, and a treaty was never signed.
