Croatia is a hot spot for gay travelers: many European gay cruises stop in the cities of Dubrovnik and Split. Croatia is in southeastern Europe and its Adriatic Sea coast contains more than a thousand islands. Its rich history includes architectural wonders, stories of Roman and Greek times, and Ottoman Empire domination. Croatia has around four million people and it skews Roman Catholic. It’s a conservative country, so only a tiny number of cities will have residents that display rainbow flags or have gay-friendly bars. The capital, Zagreb, is home to Croatia’s largest LGBT celebration. Zagreb is also home to the first LGBT center in Croatia, and the “Queer Zagreb” organization, that among many other activities promotes equality through the Queer Zagreb festival. Croatia’s second LGBT center was opened in Split in May 2014, and there’s a third in Rijeka, opened in October 2014. When visiting Croatia, there are three very popular cities: Dubrovnik, Hvar, and Split.
When Nick and I were invited to the Underground Kitchen launch in Baltimore earlier in the week, we had no idea what fun and adventure was in store. The Underground Kitchen is a secret supper club that hosts pop-up dinners in various locations. The idea originated in Richmond, Virginia, and later expanded into the Mid-Atlantic. On March 20th and 21st, the Underground Kitchen, the “ultra-luxe, super-secret, pop-up dining society featuring buzzed-about chefs, unconventional locations, and tickets that routinely sell out within minutes” came to Baltimore.

This day is a reminder for us all to take steps to ensure that our wishes are followed in times of crisis.
I was once asked, “Why would you come out at 40? You were too old for sex anyway.” It’s true that sex is not the same at 40 as it was at 20, and it certainly is not the same at nearly 75 as it was when I was 40. But older people can have satisfying sex.
Waking up on the morning of November 9, 2016 was a challenge. I sat in bed and reread CNN headlines over and over again, thinking to myself “is this real life?” The misty morning didn’t help with the fogginess that overcame my brain. The dreary weather only added to the feeling of complete despair and hopelessness.
Given that I am myself going through a job change, I thought it timely to write about how people leave their jobs, and what it might say about the organization that they are leaving.

Tax season is upon us, and most people’s first question is what they can do to pay less. The key to a lower tax bill is reducing your taxable income.
