First-anniversary Q mag captures queer Atlantans at work and play

Add this share

The good news for us here at Q is that our work is never done. Gay-TL-iens are always up to something worth covering, and the forces that support and oppose us are too. Just as importantly, someone is out there making sure that queer playtime is never far and never short of options. 

Q celebrates both sides of local LGBTQ life again this week with the work and the werk front and center. But this issue hosts another celebration as well: Our first anniversary. Q magazine expanded Project Q Atlanta's 10-year reach with a print publication launched on Nov. 16, 2017. 

We couldn’t be prouder of the last year, or more excited about the opportunities to do even more in 2019 and beyond. As we hurtle into the future, we also glance back at 20 of our best covers

On the serious side this week, Q Voices calls out racism within queer ranks, Q Politics celebrates the out and proud winners in the Nov. 6 election, and the Q&A column tells the heart-breaking “conversion therapy” experience of the ACLU’s Sean Young as this week's local queer you should know.

But what is doing good work worth if you can’t also werk it good? The Q Cover feature welcomes Divertidos Latinx Pride, Atlanta’s newest gay dance weekend. We also check in on recent events in Q Shots photo galleries, and look toward the next round of happenings in the Queer Agenda calendar of LGBTQ events.

While the content and concepts in Q magazine change each week, some things stay the same. You can always count on queer conundrums in The Q advice column to wrap our weekly offerings, you can always reach out to me via [email protected], and you can always catch the latest news of LGBTQ interest every day here on Project Q Atlanta.
