Break out the pumpkin spice and Halloween decorations, because fall is finally here! And while it’s hard not to love all the autumn colors and fancy fall foliage, the season’s also a stark reminder that, well, winter is coming. Sorry.

However, one of the many nice things about fall is that we still have a chance to get in all our home and garden maintenance needs before the snow falls. With our 2019 Fall Home & Garden issue, we offer a few ideas for sprucing up the homestead, or even finding a new place to call home, before Big Bad Winter hits!

We interview the positively delightful queer realtor extraordinaire Theo Lorenz, a real estate agent, coloring book maven, and passionate advocate for the trans/non-binary communities; we take a look at the vintage and antique wares of Emuble Furnishing; we learn how to clean that house up nice with Lions Share Maintenance; and we light up our lives with Lappin Lighting of North Loop.

A special reminder that submissions are now open for Lavender’s 2019 Community Awards! Do you know an individual, an organization, or a company that has done great work for the GLBT community in the past year? You can submit for a nominee in the following four categories: LGBTQ (Individual), Ally, Organization, or Business. Submissions end on Oct. 31, 2019. For more information, visit We can’t wait to see your submissions!
