So different? So what? Happy Pride Week in Q ATLus magazine

Add this share
Who ever said being different is a bad thing? Certainly not us, and certainly not when talking about the people and places in LGBTQ Atlanta. So Pride 2021 is different, super different. It’s still Pride, and Q ATLus is here for it.

We take the opportunity of Pride Weekend – such as it is, without a festival or parade but with plenty of DIY Pride spirit in 2021 — to take a closer look at the LGBTQ diversity behind, beyond over the rainbow with 16 alternative Pride flags.

And about those rainbows. Q Voices revisits our ban on haphazardly strewn rainbow bullshit. This issue embraces the traditional six colors on nearly every page — and the flaws surrounding people not represented in those stripes — what it should and could mean, and how to wield rainbows more intentionally.

There’s no funnel cake. There’s no parade. But it’s still Pride. There are Pride vibes in Piedmont Park on Saturday, included in a special edition of SIX DOZEN PRIDE EVENTS. Q Advice serves a newbie and a skeptic a little Pride.

Happy Pride, Atlanta! Read the latest Q ATLus issue online here:
