UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}'s first Gay & Lesbian radio station, with a low-power broadcasting licence in inner-city UsefulNotes/{{Melbourne}}.

Programs are a mix of talkback, music and lifestyle programs and a wide variety of music, typically tending towards Dance and electronic music on weekdays, with some specialty programs on late nights and weekends.

Available to listen to all over the world through [[http://www.joy.org.au/listenlive the internet.]]

----
* AllGaysArePromiscuous - CampGay presenters tend to embrace this stereotype, injecting innuendo into everything. StraightGay presenters frequently resent the oversexualised image homosexuals have.
* AllLesbiansWantKids - Inverted. It's the gay men making the most noise about same-sex parenting rights.
* BaseBreaker - Artists with large gay fanbases like KylieMinogue, LadyGaga and {{ABBA}} are played fairly sparingly. Quite a few listeners either feel these artists are overplayed in the gay scene or just plain think they're shit and tend to complain.
* CampGay - Comedy hosts tend towards campness. Two Fat Lattes are an example.
* CastFullOfGay - There's no specific rule that you have to be gay to be a presenter, but it obviously helps.
* CelebrityEndorsement - Heaps of these in station promos. Typically [[TakeThatMe making fun of themselves.]]
* DeadpanSnarker - Pretty much everyone.
* {{Gayborhood}} - You will hear the words "Prahran" and "Commercial Road" a lot in advertisements for this reason.
* GentlemanSnarker - A common archetype for StraightGay presenters.
* FanYay - A frequent topic of conversation as more ''obvious'' gay shows are typically considered "talked out".
* GayConservative - Hosts of news and current affairs show The Spin tend to cover policy debates from a conservative perspective.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff - Gay men in America like to listen because they find Australian accents sexy.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar - Many conversations during the day can degenerate into a HurricaneOfEuphemisms.
* GymBunny - Advertisers compete aggressively for this market.
* HardGay - Rumors about AFL footballers being [[ArmoredClosetGay armored closet gays]] are extremely popular.
* HasTwoMommies - Parenting rights for same sex couples are one of the big issues being fought for right now.
* HoYay - Goes without saying, really.
* [[IReadItForTheArticles I Listen For The Music]] - Quite a few men who are straight or otherwise indifferent to gay interests listen because it plays a better mix of Dance Pop and electronic music than the commercial stations.
* LoveHurts - Listening to any of the discussions about relationships make it abundantly clear [[{{Gayngst}} things aren't any easier]] on [[UnusualEuphemism the other side of the fence.]] Bittersweet love songs are very popular.
* NobodyOver50IsGay Averted, particularly with the shows Grumpy Old Poofs and Been There Done That. Many of the station's board members are gay men of a distinguished age.
* OneOfUs - L33t Rainbow Roflcopter plays the music that gaymers know and love.
* PeripheryDemographic - Quite a few. Particularly people who like the music and gay communities in other cities and countries who either lack a local gay radio station or like Joy better.
* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad - Averted, to the point where political correctness is a favourite topic of satire.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism - Quite cynical. It's not easy being queer and nobody's expecting that to change in a hurry or by itself.
* RefugeInAudacity - Presenters and listeners alike enjoy trolling the MoralGuardians at every opportunity.
* SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness - To offset the grim realities of gay life, much of the content is fun, frivilous and Camp.
* StereotypeReactionGag - Employed frequently.
* StraightGay - The majority of the hosts aren't going to beat you over the head with their FABULOUSNESS.
* TokenLesbian - There was a time when there was only one lesbian on the management board. She made a snarky PSA encouraging lesbians to get more involved in the station if they wanted better representation.
