Atlanta Pride 2020 is super different. We’re still here for it.

Who ever said that being different is a bad thing? Certainly not us, and certainly not when talking about LGBTQ Atlanta.

The entire 2020 universe may be upside down and inside out, but it’s still Pride, and that’s something worth recognizing.

This week’s print issue takes the opportunity of the 50th Atlanta Pride — entirely online but still with a packed schedule of events and entertainment — to take a closer look at the LGBTQ diversity behind and beyond the rainbow.

Nothing says LGBTQ Atlanta like its people, so we offer 20 portraits of Atlantans who make the city better through their life’s work in Q Community. In Q Voices, I temporarily lift my ban on rainbow bullshit — but not without levying concerns over how the traditional banner should and could mean more.

Always with content you can really use, the Q Events calendar lays out options to feel Pride online and in person, the Q Map shows LGBTQ and allied businesses to frequent, and Q Advice serves its dose of real talk.

Enjoy this issue, be safe out there, and happy Pride, Atlanta! Read the full issue online here:
