Your busy weekend starts here! See what you can get into.
The first full weekend in May knows what you need, and you’re going to get it. Hard, long, and until you can’t take any more. Wait. Where were we? Oh right. Local LGBT events really satisfy.

Pensacola Beach prepares for influx of tens of thousands of LGBT visitors for Memorial Day Weekend by banning overnight camping and demanding that you clean up after yourselves.
It's a gay Atlanta tradition. Muscled guys in tiny swimsuits and lesbians in skimpy two-pieces invade Pensacola for Memorial Day. Some of them leave the beach a trashy mess. Now the county is taking action.

A fresh take on LGBT news, events and photos in metro Atlanta.
Introduction
The most visited website for gay and lesbian Atlanta offering a fresh take on LGBT news, events and photos.

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.

Readers of Southern Voice named us Best Gay Blog in 2009, and we were again named Best Gay Blog in 2010 and 2011 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 in 2011.

Project Q Atlanta aims to be a major part of your queer media diet by offering breaking news, opinions, fun takes on pop culture and entertainment, an interactive community calendar 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.
