Happy and Healthy Holidays from Fenway

With 2011 drawing to a close, Fenway would like to wish you all a happy and health holiday season. This year has been filled with milestones, including progress in LGBT health, advances in HIV research, and many changes for Fenway as an organization. In the December issue of the Fenway Focus e-newsletter, our President and CEO Dr. Stephen Boswell looks back at some of the biggest accomplishments for our organization and our community in 2011.

Join us for the T-Social Holiday Party on December 22 at Club Cafe

We hope you’ll join us on Thursday, December 22 for the T-Social Holiday Party for the transgender and gender nonconforming members of our community and their friends and allies to celebrate the season together.

And if you’re feeling a little stressed out about the impending holidays, you’re not alone. Here are some great tips for handling holiday stress and depression from the Mayo Clinic. PFLAG (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) also has some advice for LGBT folks visiting family for the holidays. And if you need to talk to  someone, just give one of our listening lines a call.

There is much to look forward to in the new year, including announcements that  human testing on a possible HIV vaccine will begin in January; and we want to thank you for helping us make the past year an amazing one!
