QNews has encouraged every event organiser to donate a portion of their door to worthy G&L charities and organisations. QNews works extensively with around 109 community groups such as QAHC, Open Doors and the Gay and Lesbian Counselling service (GLWA) to assist their endeavours and to help improve LGBT resources. We are proud of our many many achievements over our 9 year history thanks to our fab loyal team who make it possible.
QNews has also assisted many businesses communicate their message to people. There is no other way of communicating with as many GLBT people in Qld and Northern NSW than by using the many resources of QNews advertising and website mediums. Many businesses have had very successful campaigns thanks to the support of QNews and the response from our loyal readers that has taken years to establish. The advertisers who support QNews can be found in current and past issues of the magazine plus we have just launched an online BUSINESS DIRECTORY to assit people in finding a business they need. Business classifieds are also available at very affordable rates.

There is also a fun side to QNews ... if you are going to raise money for a worthy cause then you may as well have fun doing it. Hence the first major event QNews created was Big Gay Day that Queensland has adopted and supports every year.
Most importantly QNews would not exist if it were not for the support of our loyal readers who are always ready to feed information back both good and bad over the last 10 years. Our readers are second to none and around 112,000 people read QNews every fortnight including the printed and the online website version of the paper.
QNews is proudly a Queenslander, with Real People, Real News, Real Fun, and does real good for all the right reasons.
Thank you for your support!
