We’re jumping back into the ring with a body-slamming new issue and wrestler Bambina on our cover… more on that later…

Additionally, the AIDS Memorial Quilt has curated a 56-block section of the quilt in honor of Black History Month and the Black Americans who have suffered from HIV and AIDS (read about this as well as how to view the quilt online on page 4).

Hello, Lovers…665.5

Light some candles. Draw a bath. It’s time to get warm and fuzzy with our annual Romance Issue!

Not only are we celebrating romance, but we also honor Black History Month throughout this issue beginning on page 2 with a review of Cicely Tyson’s autobiography, a summary of the series “Sounds of Black History” the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be doing virtually (page 4 and 5) and a preview of a Netflix documentary produced and hosted by Will Smith titled “Amend: The Fight for America.”

On the Romance front, let’s acknowledge it’s the time of year that you either love or love to hate. Either way, we hope you stay safe with the Play, But Play Safe condom and hand sanitizing dispensers that are now installed at Badlands and Faces. Read more about them in the “Love Yourself, Love Your Partner” story on page 8.
