Help Save Utah-Based Gay Pub 'QSaltLake': VIDEO


Michael Aaron, publisher of the debt-hampered QSaltLake, released this video this week asking readers who appreciate his magazine's indepth, professional reporting to help them raise the dough necessary to pay off $16,000 of a loan taken out when they started.

From the video's description:

QSaltLake was launched in 2004 during the anti-gay marriage Amendment 3 campaign with the publisher's savings and a $55,000 home equity loan against his house. In August of last year, we plead to the community that decreasing ad revenues put us in a financial crisis.

Through frugal living, many overhead cost reductions and increased focus on generating revenue, we have made it these 10 hard months. We recently found out the home equity loan is due and payable in September. Our balance is at $40,000.

We need your help to stay alive and continue our work as the voice for Utah's gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and ally community.

They have this weekend to gather all the dollars and cents possible.

AFTER THE JUMP, Aaron pleads his persuasive case and asks those willing to help to visit Save QSaltLake and make a donation. Watch Aaron's request AFTER THE JUMP.

  3. Hope the Utah gay community, which is huge, rallies around this establishment. New gay bars do really well across the U.S. heres to helping support the older establishments as well, like heteros often do. These places have history

  4. Good for them. There's nothing that makes me and my friends happier than going to our local gay dive bar...laughing with like minded gays, feeling safe, identifying with people who 'get you'...we'll even go on weekdays. It is actually some of my fav memories in the local gay bar we go to, and they truly serve a purpose for those of us who enjoy them

  6. How did I miss this! Thank you SOO much Mr. Towle.

    Being a younger gay man living in Salt Lake City, it's always a joy to pick up QSaltLake at my college, around town at coffee, etc., and just fall into the paper for an hour or two.

    Oh, and I see Michael Aaron posted on here as well, so to him, thank you again! Glad to see you getting national attention for a great publication!
