Welcome to Project Q Atlanta

 

Q is for queer. You already know that. Project Q Atlanta is much more.

The word itself, a slur whose power we proudly reclaim for ourselves, is our inspiration. It symbolizes a look into our diverse identities, the way we connect and associate with each other, and the prism through which we view our lives.

For gay men, lesbians, transgender people, and all of those that make up our queer village, Project Q Atlanta provides a distinct take on the news, information, events, attitudes — and the juicy dish and buzz — that impact our lives. We combine the authority of traditional journalism with the tone and sensibility of today that makes you feel right at home.

We’re already making an impact. Readers of Southern Voice named us Best Gay Blog in 2009, and we were named Best Gay Website/Blog in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 by readers of the GA Voice. Creative Loafing named Project Q Best Sign That Gay Media Is Still Alive in September 2010, and Fenuxe Magazine readers voted us Best LGBT News Source for 2011. What’s more, our founder Matt Hennie was named Businessman of the Year in 2010 by the Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

Project Q Atlanta aims to be a major part of your queer media diet by offering breaking news, pop culture and entertainment with attitude, sassy opinions and event photos for LGBT readers across the metro area and beyond.

And it’s not a one-way affair. We aim to provide an engaging experience that connects and interacts with you. There are stories to tell, and you should participate.

Like the word “queer” itself, Project Q Atlanta is evolved and stands for so much more. It’s a commitment to keep you informed and entertained while you go about living your life.

Project Q Atlanta. It’s gay. It’s today. It’s Atlanta.
