The upshot of more than a month of intense conversations about racism in queer Atlanta is a spotlight on a color divide that some LGBTQ people are just starting to acknowledge, others know is overdue, and still others are seeing in a whole new light.
As a media outlet dedicated to your big life in the capital of the South, Q magazine wouldn’t be complete without staying on top of the issue. We are dedicated to keep the conversations going, not just when there is a bar scandal or hot topic, but always.
This week's 10 Queer Things shines its spotlight on what any and all of us can do to fight the problem in our everyday lives. In Voices, columnist Eric Paulk calls out African American celebrities and their unique opportunity to better serve LGBTQ fans.
We also visit the four venues of the “Issa Revolution” pub crawl in our cover story. These black-and-gay-owned restaurants and bars weren’t even on some people’s radar before the event, but they’re on everybody’s lips now.
In other topical discussions this issue, the personal politics of polyamory are laid bare. Meet a couple navigating an open relationship in out Atanta counselor Alexandra Tyler’s second in a series on relationships between more than two people. We also look at what draws some younger queers to older partners by checking out the traits that make the best mates in a fun Sugar Mamas and Hot Daddies feature.
As always, top picks for upcoming events are in our Queer Agenda calendar, and the Q Shots photo pages flash your smiles at recent shows and soirees. Our advice column The Q closes out the issue with a peek into sex and lies.
