We know it can be difficult for event organizers to advertise directly to the lgbt2q+ community and since Queer Events is all about connecting we created the 'Featured Event Listing' as a new promotional avenue for our fellow event organizers.

About QE's Featured Event Listings
Featured vs. Community Listing - What's the difference?
Queer Events is all about connecting our community which is why we offer a free community event listing for events in Ontario that are LGBT2Q+ centric and inclusive. This was a great start but it's not always enough, so we've created the Featured Event Listing which will increase the amount promotion an event receives across our digital platforms. The table below breaks down what is included in each type of listing.
