The 2016 Pulse massacre reverberates still through Orlando city politics. Councilwoman Patty Sheehan, whose district includes Pulse, talks with Baltimore OUTloud

On June 12th, 2016, a deranged gunman killed 49 people and injured 53 at Pulse, a gay bar and dance club in Orlando. “Some families lost their only child and another family lost a mother. So much pain,” said Commissioner Patty Sheehan, Orlando City Councilwoman who represents the district where Pulse was located and is herself a member of the LGBT community. “It was a hate crime against the LGBTQ people.”

How does the spirit move you? Is it seeing a sunrise, a rainbow, a baby’s smile, a budding flower? When you hear someone playing piano, can you tell when they are just playing it or when they are moved to play it? Do you use that spirit to be creative?

So if anybody wants to get me something, get me 60 crabs – one for each year. I don’t want no diamonds, I don’t want no shoes, I don’t want no party. I want some crabs.– Patti LaBelle

Maryland is known for many things like our own Baltimore based baseball team (Orioles), our own football team (Ravens), hot steamy humidity, horse racing, beautiful golf courses and much much more like our Baltimore Flamingos Rugby Team along with Baltimore’s own Beehive Hon ladies. We may be challenged, but no one can challenge us for having awesome Maryland crabs.

When you tell people that you’re getting married, they often think of the wedding they had, the wedding day they wish they had, the wedding they’d have today, the wedding they want you to have, and maybe, if you’re lucky, they’ll think about the wedding that you want to have.

Managing your prescriptions is a crucial but often overlooked part of living your healthiest life. Sometimes, there are obstacles simply in obtaining important medications, and individuals on multiple medications can struggle to track which medications are required at which times. Once a medication isn’t needed anymore, it’s not always easy to find out how to properly dispose of it.

Man boobs and the real man

Back in the 1950s we were short on epithets and about the worst thing you could be called was a sissy. “Queer” was used sometimes, but it had none of the sexual connotations it carries today. In rural Nebraska, we didn’t know much about homosexuality.

From fighting AIDS with ACT UP in New York  and helping found Lesbian Avengers– Anne-christine d’Adesky’s new memoir casts fresh light on epic battles

Anne-christine d’Adesky got arrested, accidentally, long before it happened on purpose during AIDS protests. The Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist was covering civil disobedience at a nuclear facility in 1982 when she was approached by a suspicious policeman. Despite assuring him that she was covering the demonstration for Ms. magazine, the officer arrested her anyway.

Second Parent Adoption

“Do I really need to file for a Second Parent Adoption?” Yes. Couples frequently contact me and ask whether it’s really necessary to file for the adoption, considering they’re married and their child was born during the marriage. The unfortunate answer is yes, it is necessary.

Remember the days when everything was paper and you had file cabinets to organize all that paper, or it was in boxes with no organization? Today we likely have those same disorganized drives on our electronic devices. With all these electronic documents, I find having a good organizational system for them is essential. Not only does it make it easier to find things, but it helps reduce recreating things because you cannot find them.

Down with Lazy Dogs!

Our dogs have a unique lifestyle. They’re spoiled, but that’s not unusual. What makes the day-to-day different is that their dads both have jobs that allow them to go to work with their dogs.

Why early birds get smaller worms
