One of the first gay-oriented cable channels ever launched was Q Television Network. The channel offered programming ranging from films to music and talk shows geared toward issues in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender world. Owned by Triangle Multimedia, the channel found its biggest hit from 2005-2006 with "The Queen Edge with Jack E. Jett." This humorous variety show hosted celebrities (a permanent fixture was comedian Sandra Bernhard), musical acts, and comedy.
Although the network shut down due to financial difficulties in early 2006, QTN still stands out as a milestone for gay television programming.
