Q Fitness Issue all about getting things done in 2020

Add this share

If by now the New Year is just another string of days in the life and New You aspirations are waning, this issue of Q is for you. Whether it’s a healthier lifestyle or a smarter, better goals system in general, we take self-help and make it queer.

With Fitness at top of mind this time of year, our cover spread on LGBTQ gym owners is a great place to start. Together with photographer Russ Bowen-Youngblood, they introduce their places of business to inspire you with their portraits but motivate you with their stories and tips.

Joining cover model Ralph Barber from Fitted 4 Fitness are six more of Atlanta's best, and you’ll find a common thread in their advice about consistency. I’ve taken that a step further in the 8 Queer Things feature. It offers doable steps to make any goal happen.

Another group of local queers getting stuff done are in Q News this week. Meet the new trans leader of Metro Atlanta Association of Professionals, the man running to be Georgia's first openly gay black Senator, and the first out mayor of Doraville, Ga.

Q wouldn't be Q without the weekly features you’ve come to expect: Q Shots photos, the Queer Agenda calendar, and The Q advice column.

Need more? Of course you do, you insatiable bundle of human awesomeness. Find freshly updated Q News and Q Community stories every day on Project Q Atlanta, and write me your Q thoughts.
