On Thursday, Diversity Richmond, in partnership with WRIR, will host its third radio show, this time on LGBT sexuality and in front of a live audience.
The organization’s new monthly series that broadcasts on 97.3 FM addresses LGBT issues. Diversity Richmond’s first show launched two months ago and featured SAGE Central Virginia, a program Diversity Richmond has that addresses issues of senior LGBT individuals.

Harrison said the intent is to keep it fun so there won’t be any heavy topics concerning sexuality.
He added that with upcoming shows, he’d like to focus on transgender issues, ROSMY, and other topics facing the LGBT community.
Diversity Richmond’s next radio show will broadcast live on Thursday at the Glave-Kocen Gallery from 7:30 to 9 pm. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to attend. Free event.
