OutQ is a news, talk and entertainment channel on Sirius XM Radio, geared for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender audiences. The channel is available to Sirius and XM subscribers in both the United States and Canada.
Personalities associated with the channel include Frank DeCaro, Doria Biddle, Larry Flick, Lance Bass, Derek Hartley, and Romaine Patterson. Tim Curran serves as the channel's news director, with Xorje Olivares as current lead anchor. OutQ News changed its schedule on August 4, 2013, leaving behind its top-of-the-hour format in favor of a daily news review aired at 6pm EST.
In September 2005, OutQ moved from Channel 149 to Channel 106. On February 14, 2007, the station moved yet again, this time to Channel 109.This channel is also available on XM channel 98 as of November 12, 2008. Both platforms moved OutQ to channel 108 on May 4, 2011, but the channel recently returned to its previous home on channel 106.
After the the departure of Michelangelo Signorile and the questionable cancellation of Derek & Romaine, OutQ is only kept afloat by Frank Decaro and Doria Biddle. The station will soon lose all relevance as the provocative, reliable entertainment source it once was, replaced by senseless fluff like Lance Bass's show.
