Boston’s local theater scene: Check out one of these shows

Local theater companies have some excellent plays and musicals opening over the next few weeks, starting with Lyric Stage Company’s latest production, VIRGINIA WOOLF’S ORLANDO, which opens this Friday.

For those looking for a modern day gay-themed show, be sure to check out the  Zeitgeist Stage Company’s new show, STEVE, which is about two longtime partners raising their son with a surrogate.

Boston’s local theater scene continues to enjoy a Renaissance of sorts so take advantage of the talent (and much more affordable prices at these local theater companies). Make a date night with that significant other or encourage a group of friends to start the night by catching a show before heading out for drinks.

Medical group forms to help connect LGBTQ community with wellness providers

Handsome, hunk, hairy, furry, doctorFew things are more important than taking care of your health and for that reason I touch upon the topic occasionally. A few years back I wrote the post, Many LGBT patients feel alienated by their health providersA few years after my post I shared the US News & World Report article, How to Come Out to Your Doctor as an LGBT Patient, which explained why this is important: the type of preventative care you should receive – esp if you are sexually active; questions you may want to ask your doctor; and most importantly for those who are not out to their health care providers – how to start the conversation.

So when I was recently contacted by Lighthouse, a network of LGBTQ affirming health and wellness providers, I knew I’d want to share this. According to the release I received, Lighthouse is a group of NYC-based providers who have devoted our careers to caring for LGBTQ+ patients. They are currently up and running in New York City and are expanding rapidly to serve the LGBTQ+ community nationwide.
