According to Dugandzic, the show which is now in partnership with ‘N Touch News Magazine, will focus on the local happenings around the Valley with a slight twist.
“We are not only going to talk about what is going on in the community, but we are going to interview those people in the community who make things happen,” said Dugandzic. “I want to know their personal stories and find out how they got where they are.”
Dugandzic told ‘N Touch News that there will be two primary components of the show. The first part will focus on weekly “out and about” events in the Phoenix metro area and the second part will spotlight community leaders and LGBT allies.
“It won’t be your typical gay radio show,” says Dugandzic. “It will be an extension of ‘N Touch News Magazine while adding our own 'flavor' to it. We are going to help enhance the magazine by providing news and interviews that can not be told in a one page article."
Dugandzic has been podcasting QTalk Arizona since June of last year. He has been in the tech and digital media industries for many years and has been a producer on various audio and video productions but always had a little dream of ‘being a talk show host’. Dugandzic’s an active member
of the local LGBT community and is glad to add his voice to the media ‘chorus’ of Arizona.
“I am very excited about this venture with Joe and 'N Touch,” said Caylor. “We hope to make this fun, entertaining, informative and just enough of an educational component of your community and the diverse folks that you will want to tune in.
Caylor is a founding member of 1n10 and actually met Dugandzic when he was a youth attending the program. Caylor grew up in the midst of the civil rights/ women’s rights/reproductive and the GLBTQ movements. Growing up a Black woman and Southern, she has made a personal goal to become a passionate messenger when it comes to addressing human rights and diversity issues.
“I seek to inspire myself and others to embrace our own personal power and to make a difference in this mean old world. My life is to love, educate and empower.”
The mission of QTalk Arizona is to inspire and inform the LGBT community on diverse topics and conversation in Arizona.
The QTalk Arizona podcast is a separate entity and is not owned or operated by ‘N Touch News Magazine.
The newly re-booted QTalk Arizona hosted by Dugandzic and Caylor is scheduled to launch on Phoenix Pride Weekend. For more information and to listen, visit QTalkAZ.com or check out the show on iTunes or go to ntouchaz.com and click on QTalk.
