QLife Magazine Launches New LGBTQ Digital Publication Serving Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York
First Issue of New Lifestyle and Entertainment Digital Publication to Appear January 1, 2017
LAS VEGAS, NV—December 13, 2016—Today at the 17th Annual LGBT Travel and Hospitality Conference and LGBT New Media Expo, QLife, Inc. announced QLife Magazine and qlifemagazine.com, a new LGBTQ lifestyle and entertainment digital publication serving Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York launching Jan. 1, 2017.
QLife Las Vegas officially replaces QVegas and Gay.Vegas as the city’s premiere LGBTQ magazine and destination website.
“Since launching Gay.Vegas and going all-digital with QVegas in 2015, we’ve spent over two years in research and development,” said Russ White, publisher of QVegas magazine, co-founder of Gay.Vegas and publisher of QLife. “The QLife suite of media properties is built on top of a robust publishing platform that re-imagines digital publishing in the new era of web, social media and mobile.”
With web, social media, flipbook, email, downloadable PDF and print-on-demand editions available for each market, QLife will forego the traditional print distribution model in favor of the digital model that has allowed QVegas to thrive.
“Readers and advertisers alike love our digital platform. With so many delivery options available, we reach readers when, where, and how they want,” said Garrett Pattiani, associate publisher of QVegas, co-founder of Gay.Vegas and Publisher of QLife. “Advertisers love our media rates. Without the high overhead cost of print, we’ve been able to pass those savings on to advertisers, reach more readers, and with our integrated publishing platform, provide detailed insights into ad metrics.”
White and Pattiani stress that QLife is not a single national publication. QLife Las Vegas, QLife Los Angeles and QLife New York will each be a part of the communities they serve. While initial editions will share overlapping editorial, each issue will grow to have a local feel, and over time they hope to expand the brand into additional markets across the country. “We’re committed to the communities we serve,” added Pattiani. “QLife will partner with local LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS non-profit organizations in each market, providing free advertising sponsorships.”
QLife is a founding member of the National Equality Media Association, a consortium of local LGBTQ publications with an active readership of over 4.5 million readers each month. National advertising inquiries can be directed to Motivate ROI, which represents NEMA member publications.
The first issue of QLife, featuring one of Las Vegas' hottest headliners on the cover, will appear online on New Year’s Day 2017 at qlifemagazine.com and facebook.com/qlifemagazine.
