A bomb threat was emailed to Australia’s only gay and lesbian radio station, a sign of just how divisive the debate over gay marriage has become, says the station’s president. Jed Gilbert took to the air this evening to reassure JOY listeners after a threatening email was sent to the station on Tuesday night.
The station managed to remain on air while the building in Melbourne was cleared by Victoria Police about 7pm. About 30 staff and volunteers were on site. The station also has more than 300 volunteers.
