Remember fun? Q ATLus finds resilience in laughter and small victories

Add this share

As 2020 wears on, LGBTQ Atlanta’s strength finds new limits, and this issue of Q ATLus finds triumphs big and small to keep the faith.

Of course, the Biden win looms large. 10 Q Things lays out top LGBTQ priorities for the new administration. Smaller victories are no less appreciated, and at City Hall, there are two-dozen LGBTQs enjoying new advisory roles, plus one promotion for a full-timer.

Sometimes, the only saving grace in tough times is to laugh, so that’s why we were happy to sit down with Sampson McCormick. His knack for finding comedy and love, no matter what the circumstances, soothes what ails us in the Q Cover story.

If all else fails, fun memories can count as blessings. You remember fun, right? This week’s Q Shots galleries gather smiles from pre-mask times that we hope return soon. Q Advice reminds us that life continues no matter the hurdles, and talking about it always helps.

We’ll be in print again every week. Until next time, stay up to date with fresh content every day on Project Q Atlanta right here. Speaking of which, your only source for professional journalism by, for and about local LGBTQ people needs your help.
