Q ATLus puts unity in community with local gay groundbreakers

Add this share

If LGBTQ Atlanta’s post-Pride spirit lags a little, this issue of Q ATLus bolsters our resolve. Get your weekly dose of information and inspiration in this edition.

First up, take a sneak peek of what’s next with 10 local queer events between Pride and Toy Party. Plenty is afoot to take you from now up to the holigays.

From there, we profile three local gay men who set examples with their stories. Meet local gay NPR voice Jim Burress, Hamilton, Ga., Mayor Pro Tem Ransom Farley who came out in 1965, and longtime PALS volunteer Ed Mead. News you can use includes a couple 40 years of LGBTQ Georgia cold cases.

This issue also delivers all the Q goodness of our regular features – Q Shots photos and Q Advice, and tips to our fresh daily content right here at PQA.
