Stay cool through the Dog Days of summer with Q ATLus

Add this share

Are you feeling down as LGBTQ Atlanta enters the dog days of summer? You’re not alone. This issue of Q ATLus helps meet it head on.

A combination of oppressive heat, long days, overhyped expectations and vacation envy lead to 10 Q Things serving ways to beat back the blues.

More good vibes for your queer psyche come in the form of local activist Liliana Bakhtiari, Atlanta’s first lesbian Muslim candidate for city council. Other locals putting smiles on their faces, and yours by proxy, appear in Q Shots photos.

In Q Advice, we challenge those nagging feelings in good relationships, and there are even more positive experiences waiting for you in this week’s Q Events.
