WUSSY is a Southern + Queer magazine based in Atlanta, encouraging the discussion of politics, art, and expression from the perspective of Southern queers. Founded in May 2015, WUSSY has garnered a dedicated following of readers, who look to us for a curated, singular, queer-centric point-of-view.
Women-centric community aimed to bring a solid space for queer women in Atlanta to dance, party, network, and be themselves.
T A S T E curates a monthly underground dance event that is dedicated to the LGBTQ community; their vision is to continuously cultivate a safe as well as intentional space for the community that embodies electric culture, creativity and positive energy.
Banks’ booze journey began in 2012 at farm-to-table restaurant Graft in Grayson. He developed a strong, whiskey-focused cocktail program before leaving in 2014 to take up residence as beverage director at The Luminary in Krog Street Market. Banks quickly found his rhythm, winning multiple barcraft competitions around town while gaining a faithful following for creating drinks, such as the wildly popular rosé slushy before moving to Brush Sushi Izakaya in Decatur. Banks focused on the Japanese style of cocktail making, creating simple drinks with a high level technique.
