Country Queer

Lifting up LGBTQ+ voices in country and Americana.

Advertise With Country Queer

Hitch a ride on a rocketship and help lift up marginalized voices at the same time.

Our website had well over 13,000 visitors in January – a 67% increase over December (itself a 76% increase over November) – and there’s no reason to think things will slow down. The seven existing episodes of our monthly podcast has over 5,000 total downloads.

And we prioritize our user experience: we will never assault our readers with popups or a page cluttered with irrelevant ads. As a result, the few ads we do run have a much greater impact.

We are fortunate to have a passionate, deeply engaged audience of LGBTQ fans of country, Americana, and folk music. Sure, we’re still small potatoes, but our influence is outsized: in the past few months we’ve run interviews with Brandy Clark, Cam, BJ Barham (American Aquarium), Amy Ray (Indigo Girls), Orville Peck, Katie Pruitt, Elizabeth Cook, Sarah Shook, Mary Gauthier, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Lilly Hiatt, Jaimee Harris, Jaime Wyatt, and Amythyst Kiah, and we count a number of Nashville movers as followers.

We’re more than just another music blog; we’ve got a mission to change the culture of country music – and through it, the culture at large – to be more inclusive of marginalized voices. Our ads offer you a tangible way of supporting this mission.

We have advertising opportunities for every budget. Take a look at our offerings below.
