Add this share

Time just keeps spinning forward, as does the LGBTQ-ATL. One minute it’s Atlanta Pride, the next you’re bundled up working on that Halloween costume. Q mag keeps the pace.

Before you fully relegate Pride to the fond memory section of your brain, our expanded Q Shots pages celebrate the festival and parade in photos fro mour 14 Atlanta Pride photo galleries

The issue kicks off with Q Voices, where Vince Shifflett asks himself the hard questions about true love. But a lesson in bigger love awaits, one of shared LGBTQ history. If you haven’t heard about the real-life UpStairs Lounge gay bar attack, Out Front Theatre is ready to blow your mind with a new musical that brings its victims and their stories to life. 

In our cover feature, a special edition of the Queer Agenda calendar of Halloween events includes dozens of options, and Q offers queer costume ideas from Atlanta Halloweens past too. 

The latest LGBTQ Atlanta news is always fresh from Project Q Atlanta, and The Q advice column is always on point. Save room, though. There’s so much more in store in this issue. It's a lot, but you can handle it.

Flip page-by-page through the digital edition below, and come back daily for fresh content here at theQatl.com.



Look for a new print edition of Q magazine at queer and LGBTQ-friendly venues all over town.
