Questions About Herpes

Dear Dr. Eva,

I am a woman in my 30s. I have been in what I thought was a monogamous relationship for the past five years. I recently developed a group of pinheads sized, painful/itchy blisters on my left labia. My partner swears that she has not had sex with anyone else, but this sure looks to me like evidence to the contrary. She says that her doctor told her that a person can be silently carrying herpes for years and then have it show up by infecting another person. Could that possibly be true?

Relationships & Anxiety

We’re in the middle of growing anxiety and despair not only in our culture, but also in the world. Climate change issues loom over the horizon. Globalization creates economic insecurity in people. Polarization pulls people and groups apart. Social media keep us in touch instantaneously with all parts of the universe. Cultural and ethical norms change. There are numerous political developments that affect everyone, and more so with minority groups like the LGBTQ.

Dear Dr. Eva,

I am an older person and a longtime member and observer of the gay scene. As I’m sure you know, cross-dressing (men dressing as women) has been part of gay life at least since the Victorian era. And since that time, cross-dressers have varied along a spectrum from part-time to full-time. For example, there have always been young gay male prostitutes who dress as female for work but dress and behave like gay men the rest of the time. At least since the 1800s there have been drag queens, men with the ability to transform themselves with clothes and make-up into beautiful women. Drag queens would dress as women for performances and to go out at night, but never for work or for routine day-to-day activities. Drag queens were often very interesting, intelligent men– I dated several, long-term. Then in the past couple of decades, we have seen a new type of full-time cross-dresser, known as transwomen.

The Long and Short of It

Stability and success – Two different dimensions

Huzzah! This issue of Baltimore OUTloud proudly celebrates 15 years in publication. It’s no small feat to survive when you have a defined audience and to go through the worst economic crisis in the history of these U.S. Especially so when we see the decline in staff and demand for print media. But, now in the long-to-be-remembered words of an unnamed (!) person, “Nevertheless, she persisted!”

Is the foster care system friendly to prospective LGBT foster parents? What do foster parents need to consider when fostering an LGBTQ youth?

These questions and others will be answered during a special event on Sunday, June 4th from 12 to 2 p.m. at the Baltimore Museum of Art (10 Art Museum Drive, Baltimore).
