Q ATLus helps pop your LGBTQ bubble

Add this share

Protecting our hearts and feelings can be a fulltime job. If we’re not careful, though, we can become set in our ways. The queer walls we build can block our growth.

When we come out, the LGBTQ world is all new. But by the time we settle into increasingly myopic comfort zones in life and online, we may not even notice that we need a change .

With an eye toward breaking out, this week’s Q ATLus looks at the bubbles we create for ourselves amid a confluence of human nature and creepy algorithms. It also considers ways to manage our personal and political conflicts outside the LGBTQ bubble.

Check in next with the queer bar owners who broke out of Midtown and into the Edgewood party district — Noni’s, “Church” and Georgia Beer Garden and Joystick. And as more venues dip their toes back into live parties, Q Events offers even more options. Q Nightlife dives into one in particular: this year’s Ho Sho virtual extravaganza.

Meanwhile, life in Atlanta continues ever forward, and our weekly features are here for it. Turn pages to find Q Advice and the Q Map of LGBTQ and allied places to go.
