Q Television Network to Co-Sponsor the Queer Lounge at the Sundance Film Festival
Wednesday January 12, 12:27 pm ET

PALM SPRINGS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 12, 2005--Q Television Network, (Pink Sheets: QBID - News) announced today that it's an official sponsor of the Queer Lounge at the Sundance Film Festival in January. This gives Q Television Network the opportunity to acquire new products from prominent gay and lesbian producers, as well as gain exposure to networks, producers, celebrities, and the estimated 38,000 potential attendees at the festival.

"Q Television's co-sponsorship of the Queer Lounge gives us international exposure and access to top lesbian and gay producers for potential new products. It will increase our programming line up, and shows we are the major player in gay/lesbian television," said Frank Olsen, President and CEO of Q Television Network. "The only other event with a larger marketing outreach is the Gay Games, which we already have exclusive broadcast rights to."

The Queer Lounge will be active from January 21 to 29, 2005 in Park City, Utah's popular Main Street district during the Sundance festival. The Queer Lounge establishes hospitality spaces at the most prestigious film festivals in the world, and caters mainly to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender ("queer") festival-goers. Queer Lounge is: A HOSPITALITY SUITE where guests can relax and network; A ONE-STOP SHOP FOR INFORMATION, where those attending the film festival(s) can learn about films with queer themes, or made by queer filmmakers; and AN EVENT SPACE for parties, panels and press conferences.

About Q Television Network: This television network was organized to create and develop a network devoted to providing television programming for the gay and lesbian community. While the company expects much of its subscriber base to be comprised of members of the gay and lesbian population, management also believes that quality programming about the gay and lesbian experience, designed to entertain, educate and inform, will attract many other segments of the viewing public. The company's programming will be available on a subscription basis to those desiring its programming. The network will broadcast 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Providing distribution via satellite ensures availability of the network across the United States, including Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

About the Queer Lounge: Queer Lounge promotes the visibility of queer people, films and issues through events, education and information. The result of these activities is to foster professional achievement, industry recognition and public understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) people and their creative works.
