Hello, Lovers…665.5

Light some candles. Draw a bath. It’s time to get warm and fuzzy with our annual Romance Issue!

Not only are we celebrating romance, but we also honor Black History Month throughout this issue beginning on page 2 with a review of Cicely Tyson’s autobiography, a summary of the series “Sounds of Black History” the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be doing virtually (page 4 and 5) and a preview of a Netflix documentary produced and hosted by Will Smith titled “Amend: The Fight for America.”

On the Romance front, let’s acknowledge it’s the time of year that you either love or love to hate. Either way, we hope you stay safe with the Play, But Play Safe condom and hand sanitizing dispensers that are now installed at Badlands and Faces. Read more about them in the “Love Yourself, Love Your Partner” story on page 8.

More details for Dine Downtown are on page 2, and their ad is on page 19.

Hey, 2020, there’s the door. Please take your bags with you when you leave.mcbride cover

I don’t know anyone that will say that this year has been a good one. So, having 2020 come to an end makes this a “more-joyous” occasion than the usual year-end passing of the torch. For most of us, 2020 has taught us about pain and loss. But it has also shown us that if we participate, we can be part of change, and help to shape it for the better. I believe that things happen for a reason, but people are not forced to change. We are shown better and different ways that situations could happen, and it is our responsibility to either learn the lesson now, or do this all again, and learn the lessons later. Let’s try for now.

Special Issue - Holiday Shopping Two 2020662

Typically, this time of year would be a time of cheerful celebration, but it is with a heavy heart we announce the death of Laurie McBride. She passed away after lingering stroke complications on Friday, December 4th. We will be paying tribute to her in our December 22 issue, but wanted to immediately acknowledge the loss of one of our community’s groundbreakers. Our thoughts are with her wife of 35 years, Donna Yutzy, as well as the rest of her family.
