Prepare to support Atlanta restaurants that support you in Q’s 2020 Dining Guide

From communal tables big and small, one of the queer Atlanta’s rights of passage is eating good in the gayborhood.

This week’s issue of Q magazine is all about it and more pensive than we anticipated.

While the publishers imagined you enjoying the 2020 Q Dining Guide when we went to press last week, we didn't imagine you having to wait to support these amazing restaurants — or how critical your support will be for them when coronavirus restrictions are lifted.

Since you may not get your hands on the print edition, we will make our digital edition readily available to read at home, starting with the embedded version at the bottom of this page. We'll make sure you can find it easily not just this week but again later when the situation lifts.

Keep in mind the businesses in this issue that support our community so loyally in good times and bad. Make plans with the digital edition at home, order takeout if you can, and please consider buying gift certificates now to keep these businesses and their employees going for when you can return and use them for yummy meals.

For this special issue, we scoured intown Atlanta for dozens of LGBTQ and allied places to eat. With the help of our advertisers, this section takes you from casual dives to fancy occasions, from group meals to date night and beyond.

Beyond making you hungry for favorite restaurants, we also spend some downtime with our other weekly features. In Q Comedy, Sam Gordon introduces us to Don’t Tell Comedy. In Q News, the ignorance and hate really shines this month in politics.

In Q Advice, meet locals facing queer conundrums, and you can check out last week’s pre-COVID19 event photos in the Q Shots gallery pages. Because you know, the virus is a cancel culture queen.

While you’re deciding where to eat when all this is over, remember that one thing really is all about you: It's Q magazine. We are grateful for your readership, hope you enjoy us even more in your downtime, and if you have a person, group, issue or other story that needs telling, e-mail me at [email protected].

After you flip through the magazine below, visit Project Q Atlanta online for fresh content every day, and subscribe to our Friday newsletter of top stories, too.
