2012 Phoenix Award Honoree:
Song That Radio and Vuong Nguyen
Song That Radio is a grass root organization which has a dual task of operating as a radio program to focus on educating about homosexuality with an emphasis on making social changes in attitudes toward homosexuals and to organize social and other events to advocate, support and empower the Vietnamese-American LGBT community to increase visibility and inclusiveness in the community. Our goal is to improve the quality of life and eliminate the disparities in Vietnamese-American communities in dealing with homosexual issues.
During more than 12 years of operations, Song That Radio received 4 Awards:
