About QBurgh

QBurgh is your source for LGBTQ news and community resources in Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. Always by the LGBTQ Community and always for the LGBTQ Community. We strive to bring diverse voices to the table and celebrate the community that we love.

Pittsburgh has a rich history of LGBTQ publications but has lacked a comprehensive news source since 2014. Wonderful, independent zines, newsletters and blogs like QueerPGH, Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents, Steer Queer, and QueerBurgher have worked tirelessly to celebrate and support our community. From Pittsburgh Gay News to Pittsburgh’s Out and Equal Magazine and everything in between, QBurgh will celebrate our community’s history and support our communities future.
