Quorum Columbus was a monthly community-focused publication from the inaugural issue April 2013 until the final issue in June 2015. Every month, Quorum covered various issues and events important to the LGBTQ community. Topics varied from events, news, health, awareness and other pressing issues within the LGBTQ+ community. True Media brought that back as True Q Magazine. In September 2018, we launched a monthly digital and limited print magazine.
True Q Magazine focuses on being the #onetruevoice for all 88 counties in Ohio. Our offices are based in downtown Columbus, but we have correspondents all across the state. We market through our website and social media outlets, which average a combined 10,000+ hits a day.
Columbus has an engaged LGBTQ+ community. In a poll by Gallup, it was recently ranked to have the 14th largest LGBTQ+ population in the U.S. Further, Ohio boasts an diverse LGBTQ+ audience, with active communities and voices in every city. If you want a share of Ohio’s thriving LGBTQ+ audience, advertising with True Q Magazine is your best choice.
