'You Can’t Ask That' asks misunderstood, misjudged, or marginalised Australians the awkward, inappropriate, or uncomfortable questions you’ve always wanted to know the answers to but have always been afraid to ask. The 2019 winner of the Walkley Media Diversity Australia Award, the Walkley Foundation judges called You Can’t Ask That; “A program that confronts both prejudice and discrimination in an honest, open, tender and sometimes funny manner. The program is groundbreaking and tackles issues humanely in a way that has never been done on mainstream television outside of news and current affairs. You Can’t Ask That — with its large audience — has the capacity to confront us, challenge us and educate us about what it is to be a member of a minority group or simply just different.”

In 2019, it also won an AACTA Award for Best Factual Entertainment Program and Best Film, TV or Web Series of the Year at the Australian LGBTI Awards.
