Traveling to Chicago for a weekend trip is easy and affordable. Spirit, United, and Southwest airlines offer round-trip tickets from Baltimore to Chicago starting at $140 if your timing is right. Chicago has two airports and both offer public transport to downtown. Chicago is the third-most populous city in the US and a major business center. Its famous nickname “Windy City” comes from the frigid breezes that blow off Lake Michigan and go through the city’s streets – though some say the moniker references Chicago politicians, deemed to be “full of hot air.” Famous landmarks include the Millennium Park, Grant Park (where former President Obama gave his acceptance speech on November 4th, 2008), Navy Pier, the Willis (Sears) Tower, the Magnificent Mile, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Chicago is popular for its history, its city planning and development, and its cultural diversity – of which the city’s large gay community is a glittering jewel.

Each year, September 18th is honored as National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day, a time to recognize the struggles and triumphs of HIV-positive elders, and highlight the challenges they still face. The LGBT Health Resource Center has created a place for these individuals to share their stories and draw strength from each other with its new LGBTQ 50-plus HIV Group. We asked the group’s coordinator, Monte Ephraim, LCSW-C, to share more about this important day.

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.

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.

While many same-sex couples have done some estate planning, few have truly created an estate plan as a couple. For example, most people name a beneficiary on their retirement accounts or insurance policies, but fail to name a back up or contingent beneficiary. As I tell my clients, it is important to have a back up just in case it’s a tie!
