Gay Friendly Doctors in North Carolina

Seeking LGBT Friendly Medical Practitioners In North Carolina

gay coupleMe and my partner moved to North Carolina after Christmas eve and have been settling into a cozy neighborhood in Huntersville. Our neighbors know about our lifestyle and so far there has been no judgement. We have frequented a few LGBT Bars in North Carolina and have met some regulars that have given us insider tips to living as a gay couple in North Carolina. Apparently one thing they struggle with is finding competent medical attention from Doctors that are not judgemental of the lfe style. We moved from New York and the Doctors there have seen everything you can imagine, every freak on the street has walked into a clinic at some point looking for medical treatment. The LGBT community in New York is extreme and many medical practitioners refuse treatment out of fear of sexually transmitted diseases. When we moves to North Carolina we were looking to escape the chaos of the big city and find a gay friendly community that welcomed us as individuals regardless of our sexual preference. After living here for a few weeks I am pleased for the most part how the locals have treated us and am looking forward to living here for some time. I am still looking for a Chiropractic Doctor in North Carolina that is open to treating people in the LGBT community. There is a list of preferred medical practitioners in Huntersville that have been recommended by various blogs, however I have yet to visit any of them during the short amount of time I have been here. If there are any forums that exist that cover topics such as LGBT friendly restaurants, medical practitioners, and recreational facilities, please leave links to the sites in the comments section of this post for our users to discover. Any other locally owned LGBT businesses that we need to know about would be appreciated. Either put them into the comments section or email us the information using the contact email provided.

Pediatric Dentist In Oklahoma City

Same-Sex Couples With Kids Find Comfort In Oklahoma Dentist

kids dentist in oklahoma cityGay and lesbian couples in Oklahoma have been raving about the quality treatment they have received from a pediatric dentist in OKC. Reflections dental has welcomed many members of the LGBT community in with open arms and has provided non-discriminatory pediatric dentistry to their adopted children. It’s difficult in some communities to find professional service providers that don’t discriminate when two men walk in the door with their child and need pediatric attention. We have heard feedback from members of our community about the warm welcome they have received from the staff at Reflections Dental, and the quality of treatment they have received has been a reflection of the amazing people working there. It is our belief that doctors and Reflections are THE BEST pediatric dentist OKC has to offer!

Adopted children that have been parented by gay and lesbian couples have enough troubles in school and dealing with the feedback they receive from their peers, it’s refreshing to see true professionals embrace these children regardless of their parent’s sex. There have been many stories that have surfaced through our Sneerzine blog over the years about certain professional practitioners rejecting patients due to the parental arrangement. This, of course, is saddening for everyone involved and should not be tolerated. That being said, it is times like these that make us want to blog about great people, doing great things, in great communities. When professionals do their job and are not concerned about the personal lives of their patient’s everyone wins. This of course doe does not apply to child protective services or any other professional service that is tasked with monitoring the well being of a child, adopted or not.

We are excited to also make mention of other professional services outside of Oklahoma that have embraced our often discriminated communities. There is a story of an audiologist in Seattle, Washington that took in a same-sex couple that had been denied service to their 3-year-old child because of the doctor’s extreme Christian stance on homosexuality. This was a heartwarming story for members of the LGBT community that was shocked by the practitioner’s actions and discriminatory remarks. Hundreds of people gathered in protest in downtown Seattle to push back against the opposing views of people in positions of power. An audiologist should not be concerned about the marriage of two men as much as he should have been concerned about the hearing loss of the 3-year-old boy. It just goes to show har far we have come within our communities, yet how far we have to go to get to a place where we as humans are excepted for who we are, not by our relationships with other adults.

How To Hire The Right Locksmith For Home Security

There is no doubt that when we talk about home security, it starts from the front door and it is all about having the right locking and keying system. We, therefore, must not hesitate in investing money on quality locking systems that are reliable, convenient, and easy to use and also in line with changing technologies. These locking systems are known for their reliability and therefore you may not find too much of a problem making use of them. But, there could be situations where it might become necessary for you to hire the service of a good OKC locksmith because of various problems. It could be emergency situations because of misplaced keys or improperly working locking systems. You also might be ready to have a new look at the locking and keying systems and may like to make changes as and when necessary. However, the secret lies in identifying the right locksmith whether it is for regular or emergency services. The locksmith market is quite competitive and there are many players in the market today. In such situations, you must know ways and means by which you can identify the right locksmith. We are sharing some useful and pertinent information for the benefit of our readers and other stakeholders.

 Do Not Compromise On Quality

 You must always look for locksmiths who are the best in the business as far as your town is concerned. You should make use of the internet, and also local directories and try and identify the best of talents. You should have a close look at the kind of services they offer. Based on this you could classify them and then shortlist a few. You also must make sure that the locksmiths have the right certificate and other credentials that are expected of them. This will ensure that you get the best possible services from them at all point of time.

Check Their Rates And Service Cost

Once you have shortlisted the locksmiths in your locality, you must contact them as soon as possible. You should spend some time getting to know more about their service charges. You should not spare any efforts in choosing the right service providers keeping in mind your exact needs and requirements. You must have a clear idea about the costs and rates that they charge. They would most probably charge on a per-visit basis and if there are any replacements that need to be made, the same will be charged extra.

Look At Their Credentials

As you look for the right Auto locksmith professionals OKC, you will find them in various hues and shades. Each one of them will most certainly claim that he or she is the best.  It would not be ideal to take their claims on face value. You will have to go through the due diligence process and be sure that you have checked on their credentials properly. You must find more about their experience, track record, customer satisfaction levels, safety and reliability amongst other such things.

Therefore, at the end of the day, hiring a good locksmith does take time and effort and you should not try and short-circuit the process and end up choosing the wrong professionals.

How to Quit Drinking and Driving – DUI Arrests Not Enough

The Easy answer would be not to drink and drive, also for easy people that’s fine. However, having worked with men convicted of drinking and driving offenses for more than 20 decades, I understand the answer isn’t so straightforward. The real answer is much more complex because Alcohol is woven into the cloth our society and culture. It’s a social issue as far because it’s a private one. This can’t only be accurate, but painfully so to the sufferers of this drunk driver. But if you take into account the fact that just 10 percent of drunken driving charges are felonies (between injuries) which renders 1,260,000 misdemeanor DUI arrests each year from the U.S.

The question again begs to get a very simple response because if we can determine the issue driver then we can ‘profile’ him and stop him from causing the issues connected with drinking and driving. There’s not any typical drunk driver. However from my experience criminals are normally ‘ordinary’ individuals, hard working, practical and no different in the majority of us. Approximately 70 percent of adults consume alcohol and nearly all of those who consume, drink and induce… lawfully or not.

If we’re going to evaluate how we could moderate the level to which individuals consume alcohol (and other drugs) and also supply alternatives that have a number of the very same advantages. As long as history could document the actions of societies and cultures alcohol has decreased stress and given a feeling of well being to individuals around the globe. But now we are living in a time that’s exceptional in the history of the world. Time is speeding up so quickly the term ‘relax’ is just used as a target for the weekend. He discussed how idleness was believed the job of the devil. Comfort or the capability to maintain ease is a missing element to what formerly was an important part of our own lives. In the times of sooner America it had been against social laws to conduct companies on Sundays; idle days were the legislation!

Nowadays people use compounds for a number of solutions. Just take an aspirin, have a pill, have a medication and you can (and certainly will) feel much better. It is not the attribute of commercial and business pursuits; it is the duty along with the irresponsibility of each one of us: drunk drivers, drinking drivers and regular motorists (drowsy ones, mobile phone using ones, distracted drivers, active drivers) who place us in the state we’re confronting now.

According to criminal defense attorney in Fort Bend however, the drivers will need to comprehend their behavior and take accountability for their own activities. The principle of dependence and recovery is the principle of change itself. The principle of retrieval states that you will not change till you’re prepared. It follows you have to wish to change because you need something more than that which you’re currently undergoing (on your life, occupation, marriage, relationship, family members, etc). Until people who drink and drive, or drive while distracted, endure their fate then it’ll be society’s duty to react and to look after the ‘drop out’ from those reckless individuals, through social and criminal means, till they themselves begin to see that the duty of a single is the duty of all and also the duty of all would be the duty of a single.

Colorado Springs Gay Club Gets Remodeled

When Tragedy Strikes – Club Owners Strike Back

roofers colorado springsA kitchen fire burned the roof of a popular gay club in Colorado Springs. That didn’t stop the men of Colorado Springs from enjoying themselves on Friday night. We interviewed Stephen “Long” Johnson and he went on to say that all the local club goers started going over to Club Buddies while the kitchen got rebuilt over at the Rump Roast night club. When we asked club owner and Colorado Springs gay socialite Benjamin Rectumiston what his biggest concern was with the fire. He had this to say:

“Well, when the fire alarm started going off the first thing I thought about were our brothers we lost in the Orlando Nightclub shooting. At first I didn’t know it was a kitchen fire, but was pleased to find out it was in the aftermath. Everyone got out safe, nobody died, and insurance will pay for it all. So I am thankful for that”.

The fire had started from greasy hood vents that caught fire when a flaming dish of bananas foster was being caramelized for a dining quest. The bananas foster is a popular dish amongst club goers. It’s a long banana, caramelized, topped with a fruity compote, and a money shot of whipped cream. When we asked Benjamin if they would continue serving the dish. He went on to say:

“Of course we will, our guests really like the Banana Flambé in their mouths and I wouldn’t change the menu just because of an accident. The fire started because the hood vents weren’t being cleaned properly by the dish washers, it wasn’t the cooks fault.” 

So the menu will remain intact and guests will continue to enjoy the chefs menu. When we asked “how long” menu item bananas flambeuntil the club reopens Benjamin insisted that the delay was not on him, but on the contractors that were remodeling the kitchen. He proceeded to reply:

“Well, the Colorado Springs Roofing Company repaired the roof the first week and the insurance company covered all of it. The Kitchen Guys in Denver that are installing the new hood vents and the rest of the kitchen equipment have been set back from a lack of inventory. We are waiting on them for the new flat top grill and some shelving units.”

It looks like the Rump Roast will be back and open in no-time. Downtown Colorado Springs will be back in action by the end of the month. We are happy to report that since our interview with Benjamin the Kitchen guys have completed the remodel and the new hood vents, stoves, and grill were successfully installed.
