GlitterBeam, the groundbreaking LGBTQ+ radio station, has officially commenced broadcasting on Malta’s DAB+ digital network, marking a historic milestone for the nation’s media landscape.
Known for its tagline “Music With Sparkle”, GlitterBeam offers a refreshing departure from the ordinary, presenting listeners with a curated selection of anthems rather than a mainstream playlist.
This pioneering initiative comes at a time when Malta’s commitment to LGBTQ+ rights and inclusion has garnered international recognition. Since October 2015, ILGA-Europe has consistently ranked Malta at the forefront of LGBTQ+ rights legislation among 49 observed European countries, a testament to the nation’s dedication to promoting equality and acceptance.
GlitterBeam’s entrance into Malta’s digital airwaves has been made possible through a partnership with Digi B Network, the driving force behind the DAB+ network in Malta.
Sergio D’Amico, CEO of Digi B Network, expressed his pride in contributing to this historic moment, stating, “We are immensely proud to introduce Malta’s first LGBTQ+ radio station to the island through our DAB+ network. GlitterBeam’s unique approach to music and its commitment to representing the LGBTQ+ community align perfectly with our mission of fostering diverse and inclusive content.”
GlitterBeam boasts an array of shows, both live and pre-recorded, each centered around distinct themes that ensure a one-of-a-kind listening experience. With its focus on anthems and vibrant programming, GlitterBeam aims to not only entertain but also uplift and empower its audience.
As GlitterBeam takes its place on Malta’s DAB+ digital network, listeners can anticipate a new era of radio that resonates with the spirit of diversity and authenticity. By offering a platform that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and its allies, GlitterBeam reinforces Malta’s reputation as a trailblazer in championing equality and human rights.
