From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

QT: QueerTelevision was a Canadian television newsmagazine series, which aired on Citytv and CablePulse 24 in the late 1990s. Focusing on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, the series was hosted by Irshad Manji. In addition to coverage of general LGBT issues in Canada, the show was one of the venues where she developed some of her early ideas about the reform of Islam.

The series began in 1997 on CablePulse 24 as The Q Files. It changed its name to QT: QueerTelevision in 1998 when it was added to Citytv's schedule, to fit in with that channel's other news and information series such as FashionTelevision, Breakfast Television and MediaTelevision.

The series ended in 2001.

The series was also broadcast via streaming video on the LGBT website PlanetOut.
