John Q collective introduces queer magazine JOSH to Atlanta

Dressed as police officers and wearing handcuffs, Atlanta's John Q artist collective piqued the interest of many who came to see the group debut its new performance while also signing copies of the Journal of Sexual Homos, or JOSH.

Wesley Chenault, Andy Ditzler and Joey Orr make up John Q and were the guest editors of the current and third installment of JOSH, a limited-edition magazine that is only sold in London, Berlin, New York, Chicago and, now, Atlanta, at Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse.

John Q held a Feb. 23 reading from JOSH, which includes original works by artists and photographers. GA Voice's Art Director Bo Shell is included with several of his  photos from John Q's "Memory Flash" public art performance that explored the city's gay history and memories.
