QNews is a Queensland-based media organisation covering the latest in local and national LGBTIQ current affairs, community issues, entertainment and more.
A new print edition of QNews called QN Magazine is released fortnightly every second Friday, and new content is published on our website daily.
QNews is proudly Queensland’s largest source of information for the LGBTIQ community. We provide news, views, covering arts, entertainment, politics, health, travel, events and much more.
Our mission is to inspire readers by making a positive impact in their lives through telling the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community’s stories.
QNews encourages and enables people to improve relationships and engage with each other, wherever they are in businesses, schools, with their families, or in their neighbourhoods.
QNews was first launched in December 2000 and was originally printed as a tabloid newspaper after the demise of LGBTIQ publication Brother Sister in November 2000.
The first issue of QNews hit the streets on December 15 that year.
Almost two decades later, QNews is distributed to more than 450 locations including cafes, nightlife venues, hotels, bookstores, arts venues, education centres, libraries and more right across Queensland, as well as Northern NSW and the Northern Territory.

We also offer businesses the ability to reach our community via qdirectory, a second popular website for LGBTIQ people seeking LGBTIQ-welcoming businesses. Visit Qdirectory here.
