Our best-of portrait series continues in this issue of Q ATLus with the femme side of the coin to last week’s masc side. Find lesbians, nonbinary folks, trans women and drag queens channeling their divine selves in a few of our favorite Q portraits by Jon Dean and James L. Hicks.
This week, the photo feature starts with cover model and drag performer Thin Mint from Dean’s “Club Kids” expose in 2018.
Speaking of gender role inspo, Q Voices kicks off coverage this week with the nonbinary journey of local activist Bentley Hudgins. You might also know them as drag performer SHI. Setting both sides free was liberating in more ways than one.
Liberation is also on the minds of LGBTQ people of color, whose truths are starting to get their due these days. Among those realities are disproportionate COVID-19 risks and resources. Q Community talks to local queer leaders who lay out the issues.
Inspiration and liberation can also be found in our other weekly features. Q Events finds online and in-person stuff to do, the Q Map shows you where to do it, and Q Advice offers juicy tips for uncertain times.
