Marriage Advice: 10 Relationship Skills All Husbands and Wives Need to Master

Posted On: October 16, 2019

Relationship skills like any other skills need to be developed and honed overtime.

Some things that all couples can get better at is showing appreciation and validation. Showing appreciation in small but obvious ways sometimes has the biggest effect...simply being available and present to actually listen and be supportive when you partner has a problem. It's important to not give advice unless you confirm that is what your partner wants or needs. Many times they only need to be heard, not told how to handle things.

LGBTQ Monuments Around the World

Posted On: October 08, 2019

I love this article on where to find meaningful LGBTQ Monuments Around the World.

I personally know some...this is a fabulous guide!  I am also looking forward and proud that NYC has announced it will be erecting the Johnson-Rivera monument in 2021, which will stand as the world’s first permanent public artwork dedicated to transgender women.

Public memorials honoring figures from the LGBTQ community say a lot about a city’s culture.
