Since its founding, Q.Digital has been 100 percent LGBTQ-owned and operated. In celebration of our 10th anniversary this year, we have made that milestone official: We are proud to announce that we have been certified as an LGBT Business Enterprise by the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce, an organization that works to make diversity and inclusion a core value of every business.

“NGLCC is proud to welcome Q.Digital as a certified LGBT Business Enterprise, inspiring other major media brands owned by our community members to do the same. Exceptional media partners and companies like Q.Digital help tell the story of the 1.4 million LGBT business owners that NGLCC represents, and their incredible $1.7 trillion dollar impact on our national economy. Our stories of business success prove every day LGBT entrepreneurs are an essential part of our global economics, and showcasing our achievements empowers advancements for all of us.”

NGLCC Senior Vice President, Jonathan Lovitz

Q.Digital was launched with the passionate desire to help LGBTQ people live their lives to the fullest by entertaining, enlightening, and connecting people around the world. We also set out to connect supportive brands to our community on an authentic, independent and trusted level. These values fundamentally drive us in everything we do – from the organizations we partner with to our diverse set of contractors and employees to the content we create.

Our readers and members have choices about where to turn for the best in news, travel insights and entertainment. Similarly, advertisers choose where to entrust their LGBTQ-targeted ad dollars. We deeply appreciate our audience and partners for choosing Q.Digital, and choosing us repeatedly. We hope this certification makes you even more confident about your investment of time and resources in Q.Digital.

Thank you for your continued support.
