June is a month to celebrate PRIDE. To say I am PROUD to be married to this woman doesn’t even begin to sum up how I feel about her. Personally, I have been surrounded by love through this whole transition. My family and friends did not judge or persecute me. They met my coming out with open arms. They did not diminish my feelings with their own opinions, even if some personally were (and still are) trying to understand it all. My story is simple and true and for that I am thankful. Thankful for a strong community full individuality and acceptance. I am most thankful though, for a woman who loves me unconditionally and stands beside me as my partner and my equal. However, for so many in our community, this is not the way it plays out. So we stay closeted, judged and scared. Scared to be fully ourselves and scared to love the way we want to love, because we still live in a world that is full of bigotry and hate for things we do not understand. So, please choose to be kind. Choose to try and understand- not just tolerate. Choose to be an ally, not an enemy. Choose to see life through someone else’s eyes. Choose love over hate and compassion over fear. After all... LOVE IS LOVE... and it’s the beginning of everything. Happy PRIDE!! ?️‍?❤️????? #lesbian #shadenevermadeanybodylessgay #outandproud ?by @brookebolingwed

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 Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

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.

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.
