Mission Statement:

Q.Digital is the #1 reaching LGBTQ media collective (ComScore ranked) owning four sites including LGBTQ Nation, GayCities, Queerty and INTO, and representing two additional LGBTQ owned and targeted sites AutoStraddle and PinkNews. Combined reach is 11M unduplicted unique visitors (Aug 2023, ComScore). As the leading LGBTQ media company we provide brands unique bespoke marketing programs that take a brand story authentically through the LGBTQ lens, connecting with the community on trusted sites and social. Our content programs have been shown by Nielsen to increase positive brand sentiment, purchase intent and recommendation intent. Our marketing programs for brands, editorial content and company regularly win awards and honors like Shorty Awards, Shorty Impact Awards, OMMA, GLAAD, LGBTQ Journalist Association.

Unique Point of Difference:

LGBTQ+ Competitors: Our advantages is that Q.Digital delivers 2-3x larger scale of our nearest competitor with our six-site alliance. Q.Digital audience spends more time on our sites per visitor showing a more engaged audience (2-3x competitive set, Minutes Per Visitor per Month, Comscore Aug 2023). ComScore shows low duplication between Q.Digital and competitors, which shows a unique audience extension opportunity if both partners are included. Q.Digital has remained LGBTQ-owned with the same owners for its entire 16-year existence, providing market stability and trusted leadership, stability to build brand partnerships. Many competitors are brand names that have long market presence, but the ownership has changed rapidly over the last decade, owners in and out of the LGBTQ community.

General Market Competitors: Social Media platforms like YouTube (Alphabet), Facebook/Instagram (Meta), Twitter, TikTok. Q.Digital is LGBTQ owned and operated, with sites created by and for the community. While a favorite reach/engagement vehicle for large advertising agencies and brands, LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD has noted that all social media platforms have FAILED their safety benchmarks leaving LGBTQ in harms way for hate speech and harassment. Q.Digital strongly advocates that campaigns have a solid footing with LGBTQ owned media first and leverage social media carefully as limited extension opportunities. Investing in Q.Digital for advertising means the investment in LGBTQ goes to the LGBTQ community, not a well-funded corporation who largely not focused on LGBTQ issues.
