Q ATLus guides you through the last week of the year

Add this share
So this is Christmas. Well, not like any other. Oh no, not in 2020. The LGBTQ ATL will ride the weird wave of slow science and uneven government toward the New Year.

This issue of Q ATLus magazine navigates your way with activities, advice, holiday happenings and twists on tradition. Local gaymer guru Gamemaster Herb kicks us off in Q Voices with a call for specifically queer holidays just for us.

Speaking of dumping old ways, Q ATLus finds you at home this week, so we found things to do in town and across North Georgia that might make your heart glad. Q Events lists even more virtual and distanced stuff to fill your calendar.

And at long last, the holidays and the weird year end on Dec. 31. We preview LGBTQ celebrations, and Q Nightlife meets the two Atlanta queens on the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race taking a bow on Jan. 1.

Q Advice wraps the issue before you unwrap your presents, but don’t worry. We’ll be back next week to ring in 2021 properly. Until then, find Q News and Q Community, visit our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, or write mike@theQatl.com.
