Q ends queer year with art, matters of the heart, and non-profit giving

Add this share

The gamut of all things L, G, B, T and Q in the ATL is so wide and varied, we spend all year trying to cover it. This week, we chip away at it on several fronts during the holidays.

On the relationships front, Voices writer Vava Vroom lays out a queer manifesto for your love life, and The Q advice column defines love addiction for love addicts who chase the feelings instead of the person.

Other matters of the heart include our next installment of the Roaring ‘20s series, where we look at queer things that Atlanta will miss from this decade as we head into the next one. 

And if you have a heart, you might be thinking of donating to non-profits this time of year — both for the karma and the tax break. Our 2019 Q Giving Guide offers our Top 14 LGBTQ-ATL charities to consider, whether the donations come from your wallet or your calendar. Find more info on non-profits from our advertisers in that section, plus a Q Giving feature that lists dozens of organizations that we’ve partnered with and supported in 2019.

Also reaching out and touching people this season is the latest collection of photo collages from artist Cameron Lee. In our Cover Story, his Fabnormal highlights six queer neighborhoods and the LGBTQ locals who help make those scenes happen.

From heart to art and back again, this issue wouldn’t be complete without our Q Shots photo galleries or the Queer Agenda calendar of events. Find all of that, plus Q News, Q Voices and Q Community, as well as your invitation to check back here for fresh content every day.
