Q follows the leaders to see who’s setting LGBTQ Atlanta on fire

Whether you’re up for a new party, down with Instagram, out for queer fashion, or here for some LGBTQ love, this week’s Q leads you in the right direction, and we get there by following Atlanta groundbreakers in their respective fields.

Category is: Frontrunner Fabulous. 

Columnist Vince Shifflett has been around the love block, and he’s here to help in Q Voices. He offers advice for the lovelorn who tend to fall for the sex and not the person. The Q column backs it with recommendations for those queers who try to change others.

Making waves in the social world are our favorite LGBTQ Instagram influencers. We narrowed it down to fit our 10 Queer Things feature, and we think each of them is worth a follow for original, compelling, visually stunning scrolls beyond the thirsty selfies you may or may not also enjoy.

Always on the lookout for creatives setting the world on fire, I found three LGBTQ designers who are on the leading edge for a bold, colorful fashion that says, “Come on, autumn, and get here already.” You might not find these looks on racks or backs just yet, but you will see their inspiration this fall on big-name labels like Prada, Versace, Berluti and Mochino.

Pushing the envelope of Atlanta nightlife in an effort to make their brand a gay household name, the Saturnalia guys let us in on their plan to rule the world one party at a time. In our cover story, learn about their all-inclusive Rome costume party next week, and its warmup event this weekend. 

Q wouldn’t be Q without your favorite features, so true to form, we have an amazing lineup of weekly and special events, eye-popping photos of what you got caught doing last week, and Q News from our online outlet, Project Q Atlanta.

Turn each page in the digital edition below, and we’ll have more people to watch in the LGBTQ-ATL every Thursday.
