There’s never been a better time to be LGBTQ in Atlanta

With an eye on the prize in an ever-advancing movement, it’s good to remember how far we’ve come. This week’s issue collects sure signs that “our time” has come for LGBTQ people in Atlanta and across Georgia.

Q Voices kicks off with Scott King’s thought that everyone is a little bit queer these days. 10 Q Things highlights the intersections of LGBTQ identities in harmony with other aspects of our demographics, personalities and cultures. Q Politics looks at the concerted effort to enact legal protections against discrimination in cities big and small across our state.

Put it all together, and it’s a great time to be alive. You’ll feel that way in this week’s Q Events, Q Advice and Q News, too. They all have something to say about surviving and thriving in the LGBTQ-ATL.
