We promote and publicise great bands, artists and entertainers to the gay media. Many are gay themselves. But that’s not what’s remarkable, it’s their talent that is. We believe in being visible because we’re proud of who we are. But we refuse to let it define what we do.
With our cross-hair set on gay publications both national and regional, blogs, websites, tv, radio and student organisations we’re able to reach far and wide to get the message out. If you think you could benefit from the exposure we offer click here to read more.
We also promote our own gigs. The next one is the Hidden Cameras in London, Thu 18 March, info here

Staff and volunteers provide a range of services from advice right through to supported lodgings to keep vulnerable young people safe.

q:pitch is delighted to be working with Press Counsel
towards the release of the Irrepressibles
debut album, Mirror Mirror. They’ve already created a buzz with their spellbinding live performances, so we look forward to raising their profile in the gay media, where they’re sure to do well.
q:pitch is excited to be involved in a new initiative to draw attention to the problems of hate crime. After the tragic news that a man abused and attacked in Traffalgar Square died this month, a group of us have got together to see what we can do. The project aims to draw attention to the issues, press for more and better media coverage of these socially corrosive crimes and inspire others to do the same in their communities. Follow us on twitter as we take our campaign for a tea party to the stars - let them eat cake!

q:pitch will be delighted to welcome back Scott Matthew to London on 31st October, when he’ll be performing a special intimate gig at Columbia Road’s Flea Pit. Full details on the gigs
