RCN Corp. will begin carrying gay- and lesbian-themed Q Television Network’s programming in September, Q said Wednesday.

The network will be available 24 hours per day, seven days per week in markets such as Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

“We are delighted with this agreement, since RCN offers high-quality premium entertainment in major metropolitan areas where demand is high for our programming,” Q president Frank Olsen said in a prepared statement.

Added RCN vice president of video-product management Bobbie Herbs: “We constantly look to provide content that our customers demand, and this agreement helps us to do exactly that.”
