call for pitches – AfroQueer Podcast
Hi All – We are looking for stories about queer Africans on the continent and in the diaspora loving, living, thriving and surviving. (Right now we are particularly looking for love stories) Think narrative driven, surprising, even investigative. If you're an experienced radio reporter – great! If not we can also work with you to help you report the story. We pay standard freelance rates published on the Association of Independents in Radio website. If you have a pitch or questions please email producer Maeve –
