Rich Sherman moved to the Queen City from Minneapolis, his hometown, after his partner, Chris, was transferred for a job. And a year later, his tune — and business — have changed. “I am happy to say I love it here and am so thankful we ended up here. It is one of the best-kept secrets, I think. Who knew Cincinnati had so much going on?”  

(Not So) Alone in a Crowd

Local organizations push for inclusion and acceptance

For too long, being gay meant life on the fringes. There were certain places you could hang out, certain people you could talk to, certain ways you could act. Fed up with accepting “how it’s always been,” these young organizers are creating safe, accepting spaces where there were none before — and finding out they were amongst friends the whole time.

While we’re on the topic of cabarets, on the other side of the river is Musical Theatre Night at the Thompson House. This inaugural weekly event is like karaoke, but with a live pianist and tunes from your favorite movies and musicals. Bring your own sheet music or pick a hit from their provided selections. Come around 7:30 p.m. to sign up. The night runs through 11 p.m. Flex those jazz hands and go here for more info. The JCC Summer Film Series kicks off tonight at Montgomery’s Mayerson JCC. Based on the popularity of the organization’s Jewish and Israeli Film Festival last winter, the center will again screen excellent movies rarely shown in Cincinnati, through Thursday. Tonight’s film is Melting Away (Namess Ba'geshem), the first Israeli feature film that deals with the topic of parents and their relationships with transgendered children.
