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.

In 1994 and '95, the People Living with AIDS Radio Working Group broadcast a satirical drama series on 3CR, called Absolutely, Positively Everything. The cast were all volunteers at the Positive Living Centre when it was in Acland Street, St Kilda, here in Melbourne.  To celebrate the twenty-five year anniversary of its completion, 3CR broadcast a condensed version of the series in one episode on In Ya Face and re-packaged it as a podcast.

  The series was produced when HIV/AIDS treatments were much less advanced than they are today and many of the drama's cast are no longer with us.  We celebrate their lives and their theatrical legacies with this fabulous drama.  

  Special thanks to Peter Davis, the original producer of the series, who has also produced the condensed version for us all to enjoy. 

  Written & Directed by Peter Davis & Duncan Graham in collaboration with the PLWA Radio Working Group. Directed by Chuck McKinney.  Sound production by Rex Watts & Paul Huntingford.  Dedicated to the memories of cast members Adrian Collingwood, Tom Pisceki, Chuck McKinney, Gerry Murtagh and Brian Roberts.

  Includes adult themes and coarse language.
