Q ATLus looks at defining our own LGBTQ love stories

Add this share

The impulse to hop the marriage train is in full force for the last five years, but a growing chorus of detractors wants to be heard: There’s more than one way to skin a relationship.

As we saw in an analysis of queer herd mentality last week, options for LGBTQ people are expanding. Legal marriage is just one of the choices for those in love. This week’s Q Cover story offers five alternatives to legalized two-person marriage, alongside photos of a day-in-the-life together with our cover cuties.

Speaking of relationships, we also come out strong on the side of love in this week’s Q Advice column. In other weekly features, we lay out local Q Events, and another a COVID-Era profile in courage.

When you’ve taken it all in and simply must have more, we are here for you online. You can also interact with us every day on FacebookInstagramTwitterYouTube and on your favorite podcast app. Write me with your thoughts and ideas at mike@theQatl.com.
