The first will be the 10th Anniversary remastering of the 2009 film DARE, a classic about high school kids – an aspiring actress, her misfit best friend, and a loner - who become engaged in an intimate and complicated relationship. The starry cast includes Emmy Rossum, Alan Cumming Sandra Bernhard, Rooney Mara, Ana Gasteyer, and Evanston native Zach Gilford. DARE will stream from December 26 – January 3. It will be followed by the 2021 SWEETHEART, a charming and quirky coming-of-age story set on the English coast that won two British Independent Film Awards and the Audience Award at the Glasgow Film Festival. SWEETHEART will stream from January 2 – 10, 2022.

Two men in bedKAPANA

Streaming from January 9 through 17 will be KAPANA, the first ever LGBTQIA+ feature from Namibia, a country where sodomy is still a crime and gay relationships are stigmatized. In KAPANA, the lives of two men intersect in an unlikely meeting in a bar.

The Argentine film THE PEFECT DAVID (EL PEREFCTO DAVID), released this year, will stream from January 16 – 24. David obsessively works on his body to reach the idealized self of a bodybuilder. As David dedicates himself to further developing his physique, his social life begins to call out to him. The January series will conclude with CICADA, a 2020 American film following the fact-based story of its two lead actors, whose developing relationship is challenged by a need to acknowledge past traumas. CICADA will stream from January 23 – 31, 2022.

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.
