Call Me By Your Name opens in Boston, Dec. 22nd

A gay-themed movie that I’ve been raving about lately (read my movie review here) will finally open in Boston on Friday, December 22nd at The Kendall and Loews Theater. The film has been picking up accolades nearly everywhere and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Oscar nominations.

Boston Gay Men’s Movie Group has arranged for a meet up event at the Kendall Cinema to see a matinee showing on Saturday, December 23rd. If you want to learn more visit the meetup page here: Boston Gay Men’s Movie Group.

The story is based on a book by the same name written by by Andre Aciman. If interested you can read my book review here.

Boston Globe’s scathing article about the Seaport

The Seaport is comprised of approximately 1,000 acres and for most of the second half of the 20th century the land was overlooked and neglected. But for the past 10-15 years Boston’s newest neighborhood has transformed into a second financial district and home for million dollar glass condos.

While everyone is happy to see the city revitalize prime real estate, The Boston Globe’s Spotlight Team took a closer look at the neighborhood and shared some of their findings in this article, A brand new Boston, even whiter than the old. The Spotlight Team found that this neighborhood, is really only for the white and affluent (89% white and only 3% black). The Seaport may as well be a gated community in Alabama for all the racial diversity you’ll find there.

While I understand that developers can make far more money selling $2million condos or building office buildings, The Globe team reminds us that more than $18 billion of public funding was used to transform this land so it seems like Boston should be able to do better in making space for more of its population and creating a neighborhood that is more racially and economically diverse.

The Seaport’s story is still unfolding and there is much more development that will happen over the next decade. I hope that excellent reporting like this article in The Boston Globe will get the attention of Mayor Marty Walsh, our City Council and Massport so they can work to reconcile this and insist on development that will make the Seaport a more diverse neighborhood.

Sam Adams tap room opens in JP

Hey beer lovers, Samuel Adams beautiful brewery has just opened a tap room that will serve beer Monday through Saturday from 11AM to 8PM. And each Wednesday the tap room will host “Flight Night” when Sam Adams brewers will hand select four of their favorite beers from the brewery for you to taste.

The Samuel Adams brewery can be a little off the beaten path for people who visit Boston and the city certainly has no shortage of breweries to enjoy, but I love the historic mill that Samuel Adams calls home. If you love beer it really is worth visiting the brewery in Jamaica Plain. If you’ve never been take a tour then enjoy a few pints in their new tap room.

Dr. Stephen Boswell resigns from Fenway Health over mishandling of sexual harassment complaints

Sexual Harassment, Dr. Stephen Boswell, Dr. Harvey MakadonDr. Stephen Boswell has been the chief executive of Fenway Health since 1997 and under his leadership he has turned Fenway Health into one of the nation’s leading LGBTQ health centers, with a $100 million budget that employs about 500 people and serves 29,500 patients annually.

However, his mishandling of sexual harassment complaints forced Fenway Health’s Board to ask for Dr. Boswell to resign this weekend. In his place M. Jane Powers, Fenway’s director of behavioral health and the only woman in senior management has been appointed as an interim chief, while a search is conducted for a permanent replacement.

Criticism of Boswell’s handling of sexual harassment complaints that centered around Dr. Harvey Makakon came to light recently when it was learned that he did not heed the advice of legal council which recommended firing Dr. Makadon, after conducting a thorough investigation into the allegations made by staff. According to The Boston Globe, Boswell also failed to inform Fenway Health’s Board about the allegations (including a$75,000 settlement). You can read the full story in The Boston Globe here.
