There’s so much hanging — in, on, out, tight, loose… — in LGBTQ Atlanta these days. With a cover guy to illustrate the point literally, this issue of Q Atlus hangs with readers to navigate and endure the slow burn of corona chaos.
Q Voices hangs tight with issues as Tyler Scruggs outlines his list of grievances and shortcomings in Atlanta’s response to police reform so far. Q News does the same with gay Gwinnett Commissioner Ben Ku and the county’s new ordinance against employment non-discrimination, as well as HRC’s pick for U.S. Senate in Georgia, Jon Ossoff.
In our cover package, we hang in there with Rad at Urban Body, Gregory at Woofs and the Gravity guys. All of them are making business happen against challenges that would have seemed inconceivable this time last year.
As always, we hang loose during downtime in Q Events and offer the Q Map of places that set aside space specifically for our community. Q Advice then hangs out its shingle to wrap this edition.
When you’ve absorbed all that, hang with us for more content online every day on Project Q Atlanta at theQatl.com, and reach out to our editor about future coverage at [email protected].
