Our mission here at Trans Radio UK is very simple; to actively engage with the worldwide Trans (and allies including all of the LGBTQIA+) individuals and communities by the power of music and entertainment using radio shows with community presenters, featuring community artists and musicians.
Using all our platforms we also support and campaign for the trans community including actively engaging with, supporting and promoting other LGBTQIA+ organisations and freely promote charitable community events.
Whilst we are not a registered charity, we operate with charitable aims and are funded by a mix of partners, sponsors and donations.
Who are Trans Radio UK?
We are the only trans radio station in the UK although we are told we are the only one in the world. The vast majority of our presenters and team are trans or non-binary and although predominately UK based, we have many of our team located around the world. We are a community radio station run by the community for the community.
Despite the UK in our name, we are listened to in over 100 countries and are live 24/7 with a vast range of different shows from Classical, early 1900’s right up to current music and nearly everything in between. We are proud of the diversity of our team and the music they play and are a platform for members of the community to showcase their talents whether they are a presenter, DJ, musician or composer.
We have an active chat room where presenters and listeners can come together for chat and banter during the shows and we are active on most social media, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat and TikTok.
Our presenters are proud to represent the station, and regularly do, at various Pride and Trans Pride events around the country and internationally. Our services are available whether it be our DJ’s hosting, playing background music, broadcasting live or undertaking interviews. The Trans Radio UK family was proud that the founding member, Lucy Clark, was nominated for a National Diversity Award as a positive role model (LGBT) 2019 and that Trans Radio UK was also nominated in 2020 as a Community Organisation (LGBT).
