Gaywaves, Sydney’s first LGBTI radio program, premiered in November 1979. In 2009 gay rights activist and broadcaster Dietmar Hollman donated his collection of recordings, posters, photos and other documents to the NFSA. Before Dietmar passed away in 2012, he decided to further support the NFSA with a bequest allowing us to digitise more than 160 episodes of Gaywaves from 1985 to 2001.
