Quest of Life

Media & Broadcast

A Nonprofit LGBT Fundraising, Media, & Broadcast  Services Organization


Quest of Life Media & Broadcast a nonprofit organization that helps LGBT artists produce and market new albums. We are working to centralize fundraising under one roof, a roof that is the LGBT community, shares their passion for music, and understands the challenges they face. 


The internet has opened doors for them and with that has come new challenges in fundraising and marketing. Artists are using several different fundraising sources, some don’t even guarantee you will see the money you’ve raised. In today’s world there are a multitude of marketing paths and no good way to track what all your favorite artists are doing. Bringing artists together will pool resources, contacts, and in time through partner or organization run operations hopefully drive production costs down through volume.


The name originated from the radio show created by Harry Faddis in 2003 and aired on WRPI Troy. It was on the air until 2013.
