Q ATLus maps LGBTQ Atlanta spreading out across the metro

Add this share

Claiming an LGBTQ place at the table has gone from pipe dream to tokenism to increasingly equal consideration. Finding our spot on the map is broadening its scope too.

This issue of Q ATLus looks at the expanding geographical options for queer people in Atlanta. As Midtown priced itself out of the gay ghetto long ago, burghs and suburbs became new territory. Our cover story investigates where we are and where we’re going.

We also meet a gay Millennial couple making a name for themselves with year-round Pride merch in Q Community, while two of their Gen X business counterparts face 2020 fears with optimism in Q Dining. Q News tracks diverging courses for more local businesses in the age of COVID.

Speaking of the LGBTQ generations, two folks are coming out of the closet in Q Advice. One is Gen Z at 15 and one is Gen X at 55. Also on tap, Q Events serves your best LGBTQ things to do in Atlanta this week.

When you put down the magazine, pick us up again on your mobile device. We update fresh content of local LGBTQ interest every day here at Project Q. You can also e-mail me at mike@theQatl.com.
