Ms. Behavior®

Dear Ms. Behavior:
I got back in touch with an old friend, Shelly, through Facebook. We took it offline, and recently started hanging out socially. She now is involved with a woman (Joan) who tore through my circle of friends a few years ago. Joan is a woman everyone I know once voted “The Least Likeable Person…EVER.” She is a liar, cheat, and brownnoser—a real nightmare!

Joe versus Pro

Home & Yard Blvd. Section

So, the lackluster housing market made you decide to stay in your less-than-spectacular home. Or maybe you just finally realized why it isn’t selling. A little remodeling is in order.

Now comes the question: Who’s going to do it. The obvious answer: you. Why not? You have the tools. You built a bookcase in shop class.

Kudos to Dean
Good for the guy [Jeff Dean, interviewed in “Senator Larry Craig Adopts Local Attorney’s Defense, Lavender, April 11] who fought this, and good for Lavender for publicizing it! The whole story makes you wonder what’s going on when the police waste taxpayers’ money using unconstitutional “enforcement” techniques.

Spring Cleaner You’ve Got it maid

Home & Yard Blvd. Section

Someone should let Mother Nature know that she really needs to start springing spring. April is a time for sun, showers, and something, not winter storm warnings. I’ve been sitting at home in a dusty, dank apartment, eating popcorn and watching Bravo, dreaming of being able to put away my thermal wear. One can stomach only so much America’s Next Top Chef before cabin fever sets in.

A Life Manicure, with Green Tips!

Home & Yard Blvd. Section

The truth is, I haven’t got the kind of cash it takes to stay green these days. I’m not in the market for a new Prius, and I look horrible when lit by florescent lighting, no matter how ecofriendly. I’d love to buy a slew of those canvas shopping bags, but in all honestly, it takes all I can muster most times to remember my car keys, let alone enough bags to carry the week’s rations. And let’s face it: Plastic bags are just so much easier to carry.

According to one global warming Web site, the United States contains only 4 percent of the world’s population, yet creates 22 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Although industries probably account for much of those total emissions, and are responsible for more than half of our water pollution, individual consumers can help the environment significantly.

Transgender Community Health and Wellness Fair Breaks Down Borders

Community health is often the starting point—and the catalyst of renewal—for community organizing that positively transforms society. Think of the often-interrelated efforts to address HIV/AIDS, environmental racism, or massive disparities in access to health care. For many transgender and gender-variant people, engagement with health-care institutions and professionals is central to physiological health and, indeed, to overall well-being.

We Are Not Alone

At times, it seems a gargantuan task to get GLBT folks politically motivated, when our priorities seem to be gay men dancing in their underwear at circuit parties or lesbians convening in Palm Springs for the Dinah Shore classic. For many, the allure of “tighty whiteys” or the libations of the 19th hole far outweigh lobbying, grassroots organizing, media advocacy, or just simply writing a check.

GLAAD

For more than two decades, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) has served as the queer community’s watchdog against biased portrayals of GLBT people in the media.
