You can always tell it’s springtime in queer Atlanta. No, certainly not by the uncertain weather, but by the abundant stuff available for us to get out and do.
It’s like every L, G, B, T and Q in the village pokes their head out and realizes that we better get our 2019 life while the gettin’ is good. Q magazine and Project Q Atlanta are here for it, and this week's print edition finds the spring magic in nightlife, entertainment and theater.
Poking their own heads out like freshly hatched gaybies, Georgia’s new club kids grace our cover story. Contributor Jon Dean offers one of his photo profiles yet on six budding personalities.
Putting her mark on nightlife for way longer, meet the award-winning cocktail slinger Thuy Nguyen. She takes us behind the bars at Frogs and BJ’s to learn more about what makes “Twee” tick.
Q has offered some spring theater in recent weeks, but none are quite like Angry Fags. In my interview with Atlanta playwright Topher Payne, we find out why the return of his pulse-pounding dark comedy to 7 Stages could be the most important must-see queer show of the season.
And since LGBTQ Atlanta never stops, neither do we. Dive in for all of the above, in addition to your weekly doses of Q News, Q Shots, the Queer Agenda, and The Q.
After you’re done, hit us up for new content every day on Facebook, Instagram and right here at Project Q Atlanta. You can also write me directly at [email protected].
