Audacy Amplifies LGBTQ+ Voices for Pride

Pride spotlights the unapologetic voices, the inimitable icons, and the stories that matter to the LGBTQ+ community. Audacy is committed to using its platform to support these voices and connect listeners with personalities, music, and content to celebrate and uplift the community and its allies.

Audacy’s CHANNEL Q is a party with a purpose 365 days a year. It’s a platform dedicated to celebrating and empowering the LGBTQ+ community by offering visibility and support to those who may feel silenced or underrepresented through music, news, and interviews with stars like Bebe Rexha, Sofi Tukker, David Archuleta, and Taylor Dayne.

Pride Month brings even more opportunities for CHANNEL Q to highlight up-and-coming LGBTQ+ artists with its first “Q the Music Spotlight,” featuring artists like Chappell Roan, Madison Beer, Kaleena, and Shygirl.
