RUN…The gay zombies are coming!!!

Unbeknownst to the superheroes, love stories, and psychological thrillers claiming top spots over at the box office, a boogie man is approaching. He’s looking to slash and maim his way right to the top. That’s right friends, just in time for my favorite holiday, Gay Horror flicks are making their way to audiences.

My last trip to Nashville’s favorite GLBT superstore (OutLoud!) turned up Zombies. When Christian sold his soul to the dark powers of Samuel he was promised a life free of guilt and no recollection of his sins. A world where a small cabal of handsome killers, zombies, seduce and prey upon innocent men at will. This movie follows Christian on a downward spiral as his memory awakens from the numb life he's grown accustomed to. His past causes the line between madness and sanity to blur. Christian is forced to choose a life of absolute power or to abandon his dark existence and walk the Earth as a mortal.

Alright I’ll be honest, I borrowed that synopsis. But I had to. Watching this movie was like watching one of my own incoherent dreams; a dream with enough gore to make Freddie gag. Even worse than the gore was the one guy’s sideburns! And maybe it’s just me, but I prefer that my zombie movies have actual rotten-faced zombies. No pop-culture references, no chases, no comic relief, just one long train wreck that you just can’t seem to turn away from. Turning away proves to be a challenge because amidst all the strangling there are some hot victims that I’d like to get my hands on.

What’s your favorite scary movie? I doubt you’ll be saying that it’s Zombies any time soon, but if you’re looking for something gruesome to make that certain squeamish person move closer, Zombies will definitely do the trick, or should I say deliver the treat. Till next time gals and ghouls…what the, BEHIND YOU!!

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.

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.
