This Week on Orange Ribbon Saturday 22 May 2010

This week on Orange Ribbon we will be talking to Sam who comes from London. Sam is still a young guy and will talk about his early life in London, his school days and getting in with the wrong gang at school. He does have some regrets, he almost brook his mum's heart by getting into petty crime and ending up in more trouble than he could cope with himself.

Sam is a very nice young man, he now realises he did wrong and went all out to correct his ways and make his mum happy. Unfortunately he had a serious accident before he come to Australia over two years ago. Sam will tell us how bad it is, how he copes being partially disabled and how he comes to terms with his life now.

To hear Sam's story, tune into Orange Ribbon on Joy 94.9 on Saturday at 2.00pm.

If you have any questions for Sam, you can sms 0427 JOY 949 or email

This Week on Orange Ribbon Saturday 15 May 2010

On this weeks show, we will be exploring the two sides of  "coming out". What is it like for someone to come out to a friend, their reaction and what it is like for the friend to have someone come out to them.

Both our guests are born in Australia to Vietnamese/Chinese parents, we will be looking into if it was easier for one to come out to the other because of their background or because they were good friends only.

If you have had an experience of coming out to a friend and want to share your experience, you can email or sms 0427 JOY 949.

Another great Orange Ribbon show this week on Joy 94.9.
