Goal

Quest of Life Media & Broadcast is out of funds. Our Website has been suspended due to funds owed, QLRadio will be shut down in the coming week due to lack of funds. Phones/Internet/Mail Service all end in the next 10 days as well. We need approx. $1000 to continue our work. We need your help to continue playing your music and the music of the LGBT community. This is it. Our website is just the first casualty. If you value your music reaching an audience we need your support yesterday. You can make a one-time contribution or a monthly contribution.


Quest of Life Media & Broadcast
On February 1, 2018, the website and social media pages for Quest of Life Media & Broadcast went LIVE!
What began in October 2016 with the thought "What more can be done for the LGBT Independent Artist Community" had developed into a structure.

QLRadio
On February 17, 2018 QLRadio went LIVE broadcasting music from LGBT Independent Artists. Our own radio station was not in the plan 16 days earlier. We were partnering with an existing source. It became quickly apparent that we needed faster and more control of this marketing tool. Voila'.

Nonprofit Operations
Our projected 2019 Operational Budget is $3000. This is essential administrative costs: Licensing, Communications, Etc.

Emerging Artist Grants
We would like to launch our Yearly Emerging Artist Grants program in the Fall 2019. For this we are looking at an additional $3000. The emerging artist grants are awarded to newer or first time release artists. Nothing encourages creativity and pride in accomplishment than holding your own music CD. I know, Christmas 2018 we released a holiday compilation album. This was a long time dream of mine and I still grin when I see it.

Venue Database
Also in 2019 we would like to get our Tour Venue Database up and running. This database will help LGBT artists planning tours to locate venues in their planned areas of travel. These venues will welcome them, support them and help them feel safe in unfamiliar parts.


Start Up Expenses
Near the end of 2018 we were able to eliminate some of our startup debt thanks to you. We still have a little more to go and would like to eliminate that in the first half of 2019.

Audience
In our first year we have had visitors to QLRadio and our related websites from over 40 countries (See Image Below). Life for LGBT people in some of these countries is quite volatile. I'm excited by the thought that we might be a beacon of hope.
