Q takes a walk on the wild side on eve of Atlanta Leather Pride

Add this share

Q’s commitment to queer diversity continues this week with portraits of the men of Onyx Southeast, and that’s just the tip of what we have in store.

The Atlanta chapter of the social group for black gay men into leather and kink takes its 20th anniversary bow this year, so to celebrate, our intrepid online editor Patrick Saunders and tireless contributor James L. Hicks collaborate to profile the collective and its members in a drop-dead gorgeous cover feature.

More restrained in his presentation but just as tenacious in his passion is Humberto Orozco. The president of Latino LinQ tells his personal story of the American Dream, as well as his experience leading the Atlanta-based resource for LGBTQ Latinx Georgians.

And as much as we laud action, the queer experience can also be an exercise in reflection, so we return to a popular 10 Queer Things theme this week: Real queer people offering advice to their younger selves. What would you tell you if you could go back?

Q being Q and you being you, this print issue is still all about that life in the best-of Q Shots photos, the Queer Agenda calendar, and The Q advice, plus the best of our fresh daily Q News from right here on Project Q Atlanta. Enjoy.
