Calling all computer illiterates!

So let’s face it…We as a community love our porn. Love it! Gotta have it! The only problem is that frequently porn use can open us up to malicious software—the viruses, spyware, adware, worms, Trojans, and other generally nasty bits of software code that can wreak havoc on your computer system. 

Or maybe you need some favorite correspondence from a, ahem, loved one, to be accessible to you but hidden from other prying eyes using the same system as yours.

Or maybe you are setting up a new computer system and network for your business and you want to support other business owners in the GLBT community.

Whatever your need, and whatever your reason, GLBT Computer Repair is willing to assist with a variety of services.

GLBT Computer Repair "exists as a safe place for your computer repair." They specialize in discretion, and frequently can remotely access your computer at a time convenient for you to do many repairs, especially malware removal. This often eliminates a potentially embarrassing visit from a technician to your home.

I asked the owner, Tabitha, why we should choose her over one of the bigger computer repair/big box companies that specialize in in-home computer service calls. 

“Well, most computer services charge around $299 to do onsite virus removal," she says. "We will do it for much less while keeping in mind how important your privacy is."

Their understanding of discretion extends to payment options as well. They accept cash, of course, but they also accept checks and all major credit cards. The payment, however, does not reflect anything GLBT in the entry, removing any potential recriminations from frequenting a GLBT-themed business if one is still in the closet.

For those fully out and wanting to support GLBT-owned businesses, GLBT Computer Repair is owned by "family." The staff is trained to accommodate customers who are needing a professional to diagnose and treat any type of computer system break down, or who are looking to upgrade your system capabilities for a highly competitive price.

GLBT Computer Repair specializes in:  

  •  PC, Laptop, MAC Repair
  •  Tune-up and optimize a sluggish computer
  •  Software/Hardware Upgrades and Installation
  •  Install any hardware or software
  •  Setup and secure a wireless network (or troubleshoot existing problems)
  •  Computer Setup for homes and offices
WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
