Q ATLus catches Atlanta dreaming of Pride Weekend

Add this share
Every last one of us will probably take a different route to celebrating Pride 2021, and that’s OK.

With love in their hearts and safety on their minds, a growing collection of organizers are stepping into the Pride void so that you can do Pride Weekend your way next month. Even the City of Atlanta stays in on the Pride action.

With burgeoning Pride plans as our cover story, the latest issue of Q ATLus magazine also meets LGBTQ Atlantans living their truth and making their dreams come true. Meet the t-shirt queen and the grille guys making stuff happen in the ATL.

You know what else is full of Pride besides Oct. 8-10? You are, silly. We caught you smiling in our Q Shots photos, making plans in the Q Events calendar, and shaking your heads at each other in real-world Q Advice.

Keep turning pages with your Prideful self, and hit us up on social media or right here at home for fresh content every day. You can also write me at [email protected].

Q ATLus is in print weekly. Read the latest issue online here.
