OUT LGBT Well-being gets voice on GaySA Radio

On every last Friday of the month between 12 noon and 3 pm, OUT will be sponsoring the Motormouth show. During these three hours there will be interviews and features around various aspects of OUT’s services and operations.
 
Listeners to GaySA Radio will get access to practical health tips, advice and resources.
 
The first of these programs is scheduled for Friday 26 February between 12 noon and 3 pm. This Motormouth show will feature interviews with Dawie Nel, the Director of OUT, as well as the Health Manager, Johan Meyer.
 
Giving an overview of the organisation and its activities, they will be followed by Jay Matlou who is the Training and Health Officer and Gerhard Damstra, the Registered Nurse at OUT. They will further talk about the services that are available at OUT and how to access them.
 
The interviews will be available as podcasts for download, as well as being on YouTube and social media. Broadcasts will also go into a repeat cycle so that the interviews can be repeated when listener numbers have increased.
