Sexy is as sexy does for a hot summer in Q ATLus magazine

Add this share

Made ya look! Even as we offer eye candy to get attention, the Q ATLus cover story this week reminds LGBTQ Atlanta that sexy is and always has been more than skin deep.

So yes, sexy is as sexy does. Flip to 10 things about you that are hotter and less fleeting than perfect abs this summer, and note that two of them are knowledge and smarts. That’s where the rest of this week’s issue comes in.

Start with a Q Voices perspective on the trans scale from writer Heather Maloney, then keep it going with Q News you can use. It’s been a busy week in Atlanta for items of queer interest, so Q News features coverage of Atlanta Pride’s cancellation, as well as the other fall events hanging in the balance amid growing threats from coronavirus.

We also catch up with business owners navigating the COVID-era frontier, including those that closed under infection scares and those that now require masks to enter. One of the latter is Mark Jackson at Brushstrokes. We interview him about doubling down on community to stay afloat.

As always, this issue features the Q Map, Q Events calendar and Q Shots photos from Stonewall Weekend’s Beauty In Colors rally. Finally, Q Advice closes us out with a look at  the difference between “violence” and “property damage.”

We hope you add to your sexy with this issue, join us online every Friday for a new topic on Q Conversations live, and find fresh coverage daily right here on Project Q Atlanta. You can also write me via [email protected].
