Matthew Terrell

Matthew Terrell writes, photographs, and creates videos in the fine city of Atlanta. Terrell’s work can be found regularly on Huffington Post, where he covers subjects such as the queer history of the South, drag culture, and gay mens’ health issues. He is a cofounding member of Legendary Children, Atlanta’s premier queer art collective. Legendary Children celebrates Southern drag culture through photography, performance art, video, and writing. Terrell received an Idea Capital Grant in 2014 for his project “Sweet Tea: The Story of the Queer South.” In 2014, he found a forgotten fragment of a Keith Haring mural at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta—it was his most proud achievement. Terrell received his BFA and MFA in writing from Savannah College of Art and Design, and an MA in communications from Georgia State University.
