This week’s Q magazine shows queer Atlanta a good time

Add this share

Activism and advocacy are an integral part of LGBTQ life in Atlanta, but we gotta do downtime too. We don’t have to give up anything to have some fun, and ultimately have it all.

Softening those edges makes everyone more well-rounded and ready to roll, so this week’s Q shows you a good time.

And what better timing than Cinco de Mayo? It dovetails nicely with weekend vibes and the warmest weather in months, so Q's Holigaycalendarpresents a rundown of Saturday's Cinco de Mayo parties. Plus,10Queer Thingsoffers photos from Cincos past for “how we Cinco” in the ATL.

Your downtime is also on the minds of two Atlanta comics who also happen to be besties. Their “Prayer Requests” comedy showcase mixes his gay sensibilities with her Southern sass in the Q Events column. To entertain you further, Q Stage meets the people breathing new life intoSordid Lives with a casting twist at Out Front Theatre.

One faction of our community that doesn’t get celebrated nearly enough is African-American lesbians. With some help from rapper and Mogul Jay-Z, this week’sQ Voices columnist is here to change that. When Jay-Z’s mom came out as gay, his public embrace of her opened the floodgates on a demographic that's too often ignored.

We wrap this issue with your integrity, which would appear to be for sale in The Q write-ins this week. We set them straight… so to speak. As always, we also haveQ Shots from past events and theQueer Agendafor new ones.

Read the digital verson below, pick us up around town each week, and check in here on Project Q Atlanta for fresh news, views and interviews every day.
