CHANNEL Q is Giving Everyone A Voice

CHANNEL Q is an innovative media destination built for and by the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. We strive to offer exceptional programming that will entertain, inform and inspire our listeners by giving everyone a voice. 

Your new radio home for LGBTQ news, talk and new music. Listen anywhere, anytime on the Radio.com app!




Welcome to K-GAY 106.5, The Pride of The Desert.  We're THE local radio station serving our Q-munity with entertainment and information and a whole lot of love.  KGAY is a different kind of radio station because we're a service of the not-for-profit organization:  Qchella Media Corporation.  We believe that LGBTQ lives are strengthened and affirmed when our stories are told, broadcast and heard, by US, not by stereotypes.  We provide a platform for the Q-munity to access our airwaves and on-demand programming as we build a station to meet the unique needs of the unique needs of the Coachella Valley.  Every dollar raised through advertising and support stays right here to keep us on the air to meet the needs of our diverse community.  Working closely with other media partners and organizations like The Center, we’re the voice of LGBTQ, loud and proud.
