LQ is marketed to a lesbian audience and gets an average of 500 views a month. The domain has been in operation for more than 10 years and is actively maintained. Over 60% of our landing traffic is from direct visits rather than search, and so are targetted traffic from this particular audience of queer women we promote to. If you want to reach lesbians and queer women, this is where to advertise. If your business offers services or products of special interest to queer women, then talk to us about combining your ad with an article showcasing that. Free ads may be available for local non-profits or artists at the discretion of the editor.
