Q ATLus remembers Black History weaves us together all year

Add this share
Black History Month arrives with extra attention on issues and people, as well it should. Too often, though, wider public attention fizzles as the calendar turns to March.

Also too often, interest and coverage center only on Black suffering without acknowledging Black joy. It cites Black History without acknowledging that Black people are making and refashioning it right this minute.

This issue of Q ATLus magazine remembers that we keep all of LGBTQ-ATL in mind all year. The local queer tapestry we weave is only as strong and beautiful as every individual thread. This week’s Q Cover story revels in the last 12 months of contributions from the local, national and international Black figures gracing our cover.

Also keeping it BLK, dating guru Jonathan Kirkland takes his career experience at Grindr to the BLK singles app. He offers Five Q Things to keep online flirts from ghosting you.

Also in this issue, Q Advice discovers cheaters hiding secret sext sessions. Q Community finds Out Georgia stepping up for Black-led businesses. Q Voices hears Scott King predicting a better future for 2021.

Enjoy, and when you’re done, follow and message us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and right here on Project Q Atlanta for fresh content every day.
