Gay Life Volume 34, Number 9
Spring: The time for growth and renewal, or simply the season for shedding coats and hats. While I've always claimed autumn as my favorite time of year, I get downright giddy on the first warm days of spring. As I shed long-sleeves and sit beneath the sun, I swear I can feel the vitamin D seeping in through my pores and rejuvenating both my soul and my previously hidden, embarrassingly pale skin. Of course, other spring days bring only rain. But rain makes the flowers grow. And itís this kind of growth we're featuring this issue.
Take a look at the gorgeous gardens growing right here in Baltimore, tended by knowledgeable community members with a passion for plants (p. 12). We also have a Q&A with Dietitian Sara McClean who tends Moveable Feast's vegetable garden, which provides fresh local produce for Marylanders living with HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, and other chronic illnesses. Moveable Feast could use your help—whether you'd like to volunteer in the garden, join the hundreds of cyclists riding in this year's Ride for the Feast (p. 6), or if you're able to donate funds—helping Moveable Feast means helping our community. Supporting these guys is not only rewarding, itís a blast: check out some of the fun on page 22.
On a separate note, we're shaking things up here at Gay Life. Read about our upcoming improvements on the opposite page.
