Q’s 100th issue meets community champions and history makers

For our 100th issue, Q celebrates exactly two years since our decade-old website went into print and raised the bar on local LGBTQ hard-copy coverage. For our next trick, we go from weekly to twice monthly.

Of course, we’ll remain the go-to local source for Atlanta-based queer news, events, photos, community voices, interviews, advice and feature stories. And of course, fresh content we’re known for at Project Q Atlanta will continue be updated online every single day.

The subjects in this week’s issue know about topping the competition too. Meet a community champion, groundbreaking founders of a fun and worthy new event, a singer with quite the personal story to tell, local nightlife mavens and queer Atlanta history makers.

Adah-Duval Pittman-Delancey literally has “Champion” in her job title at Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, and she deserves it just as much in her role with Teach for America’s LGBTQ initiative. While she is our Q Covergirl, Duval lets the organizers of Condom Couture put the bass in their walk in Q Events. Their runway show this weekend champions safe sex, body positivity, women’s rights and queer inclusion.

We also take the first in a series of looks into the 2020s by way of the ‘00s and ‘10s in the 10 Queer Things feature. Gone-but-not-forgotten nightclubs start off our rundown of things we’ll miss, then stay tuned for icons passed, businesses shuttered, and organizations we loved.

As always, this issue publishes Q Shots photos, the Queer Agenda of events, and The Q advice column. Reach me about any and all of it at [email protected], and get in on ad deals to reach our vast online and print readerships via my co-publisher Matt Hennie via [email protected].
