Q ATLus reads the femme writing on the wall

Add this share
Stifling our feminine sides is one of society’s curses, whether you identify as male, female or non-binary. Reconfiguring the self to perform as expected is nothing short of torture for many LGBTQ people, and those who would or do rebel pay steep prices for their freedom.

This week’s Q ATLus photo essay reads the writing on the wall.

Times are changing, as the youngest LGBTQ generation takes their predecessors’ groundwork and runs with it. Gender expressions once considered recalcitrant or stubbornly noncompliant are increasingly visible in the mainstream.

Breaking gender and orientation barriers is nothing new for Kim Jackson. What is new for the black lesbian priest is her title: state Senator-elect. Meet her in Q News. Also raising a queer voice is comic Ian Aber. He sits down to talk about str8ppl with Podcast Q in Q Community.

Also in this issue, gay-owned Agatha’s dinner theater struggles, Q Events lays out this week’s calendar, and Q Advice counsels a gay man’s seven-year itch.
