Q finds inspiration in local queer music, issues and events

Add this share

While others search for LGBTQ news and views in far-flung places or from national sources, Q is here with a thriving crop of local fodder to keep you interested and motivated.

If we’re not attending a trans symposium at the Center for Civil & Human Rights, we’re attending a concert at Cobb Energy Centre. If we’re not grappling with deep thoughts on aging while gay, we’re embracing the bisexuals in our ranks. If we’re not making waves with a local rapper, we’re pondering the longevity of our relationships.

All of that and more takes place in Q magazine this week alone.

On the Q Cover, LGBTQ activist and rapper Ripparachie returns to recording with a vengeance. Learn about his journey in our interview by Patrick Saunders and photo essay by Russ Youngblood. Taking us on a 180 from rap to ballads, Tony-winning star of stage and screen Ben Platt has a new album and tour in town next week.

We're also tackling issues of queer interest in 10 Queer Things and The Q advice column. That trans symposium we mentioned? That and more than a dozen other Atlanta events are in The Queer Agenda calendar of the week’s best downtime options. Meanwhile, locals are up in their feelings in Q Voices and in Q News. Of course, our cameras are never far from your sightline either, and we have those results in our Q Shots photos.

As long as you’re doing cool stuff, we’ll be watching and recording it in future issues of Q. Until then, click through to wake up and smell fresh content online every day on Project Q Atlanta. In the meantime, pick up this week's issue in print, read the full issue here:
