International Women's Day1

Monday March 8th 2021

When it comes to values and ideas Team Gaydio can really get behind, International Women's Day is something we're always keen to support and to learn from.

A cause that's all about equality, standing up and being counted when something's not right, and doing what we can to inspire and develop those around us to be the best they can be has powerful echoes of the LGBTQU+ liberation movement and in 2021 Gaydio is stepping up our support in a day dedicated to celebrating the successes and achievements of women within our community - and putting female voices first.  

Tune in from early breakfast to the small-hours of Monday March 8th 2021 for Gaydio's full-female line-up.

IWD 2021 Wide 1

We're celebrating everything from cutting-edge DJ talent, to home-grown musicians and some of the best ladies you'll find behind the mic anywhere in the world. Expect a day of championing the the trumphs of women in our community and beyond as part of the international day of action, making a call for accelerating the journey towards gender equality.

By tuning in...
you're helping to break down the stereotypes around who should or should not be behind the mic or decks.

By getting your friends to tune in...
you're standing side-by-side with women worldwide in raising awareness and helping to challenge bias.

GAYDIO BREAKFAST TAKEOVER: LUCY SPRAGGAN  

IWD Lucy Spraggan 2021

Lucy's one of the UK's most exciting and talented young, female singer songwriters today and she'll be kicking off IWD by waking up the UK with plenty of cheeky Northern charm and if you're lucky, some tea and toast. After hitting TV screens and headlines on X Factor Spraggan quickly became a household name as a feisty, female champion for the LGBTQ community. A regular guest on Gaydio Breakfast, she'll be taking the helm for the morning, waking you up - healthy, happy, independent and body confident. Expect everything you'd normally get from the show, but with extra love, appreciation and respect for all things female and a chance to hear tracks from Lucy's brand-new record-breaking album, as part of a 'listen' party.
