It’s #GivingTuesday. Project Q Atlanta needs your help.

I launched Project Q Atlanta in 2008 to provide LGBTQ journalism that wasn’t being done, tell stories that were going untold and report it all in a way that was fresh and impactful. Local LGBTQ media at the time was at a crossroads and struggling to survive.

Some 12 years later, Project Q Atlanta is at a similar crossroads. The coronavirus pandemic decimated advertising – our chief source of revenue – and left us struggling to survive. It hit at a time when readership is setting records and interest in our journalism is higher than ever.

Independent, queer, local and fact-based journalism is needed more than ever.

That’s why we need your help.

On this #GivingTuesday and #GivingNewsDay, I’m turning to you – our loyal readers – to support Project Q’s journalism by making a donation today.

Yes, I’ll donate!

We are incredibly proud of the impact our journalism makes, but we need your support to keep going. We’re the only queer media outlet in Atlanta with fulltime professional journalists bringing you in-depth coverage of local LGBTQ issues you can’t find anywhere else. Here’s a handful of our in-depth reporting in 2020:

• How coronavirus ravaged dozens of LGBTQ-owned businesses in Atlanta

• The passage of Georgia’s first LGBTQ-inclusive hate crimes law and anti-LGBTQ bills in the state legislature

• The election of the first LGBTQ person to the state Senate and a record number of LGBTQ lawmakers at the Gold Dome

• The push to create safe spaces for black transgender people and the growth of trans homelessness during the pandemic

Journalism like this is free to our readers, but it’s expensive to produce. The funds we raise now are vital to sustaining our journalism and keeping us on strong financial footing into the New Year.

This #GivingTuesday and #GivingNewsDay, invest in us.

With thanks,

Matt Hennie
Project Q Atlanta
