Another Life: Season 2 on Netflix!

Today, Netflix offered up a tantalizing sneak peek of the second season of its fun, sci-fi original Another Life! It feels like it’s been eons since the first season dropped way back in 2019— pandemics can really impact your sense of time, I guess — but hopefully the time away has only made the fan base…

Spacing: “Missing from the Village: Review.”

Pick up the newest issue of Spacing to find my review of Justin Ling’s book Missing from the Village: The Story of Serial Killer Bruce McArthur, the Search for Justice, and the System That Failed Toronto’s Queer Community. A thought-provoking analysis of a tragedy that exposed the fissures in the already difficult relationship between the…

Toronto Star: “On Nina Arsenault.”

I wrote a piece for The Star on playwright, performance artist, journalist, and local LGBTQ+ legend Nina Arsenault — and how she is transforming the recent social media rumours of her death into art. “Artist Nina Arsenault says she learned of her own death second hand. “Oh, I heard it was a beautiful funeral,” she laughs….

Flare: “A World Without Systemic Injustice.”

I wrote a fun little piece for Flare, rounding up 2020’s biggest television hits and discussing how each grapples with identity and representation — in a year when both subjects have been at the forefront of everyone’s mind. And while some series were more content to take an idealistic approach, others dug in their heels…

Toronto Star: “Alone in the Crowd.”

One of the chief pleasures of pre-pandemic life was the ability to move through urban space — freely and with a certain degree of anonymity. Oh, to go into any old dive bar, take a seat at a table, and just watch the rhythms of life occur around you. It was a simple thing, but one…

Toronto Star: “On Losing Queer Spaces.”

Losing The Beaver has been hard for so many of us in Toronto’s LGBTQ+ community, as it was a space that really helped redefine what it means to be queer in the city beyond any one specific neighbourhood. I have countless memories of sweaty nights, dancing on the cramped dance floor, and meeting new friends…

Toronto Star: “Pride and the Impact of COVID-19.”

I wrote a piece for today’s Toronto Star on the annual Pride celebrations and the impact of COVID-19 on the city’s LGBTQ+ community. I appreciate Dean Odorico (of popular bar Woody’s) and Jaymie Sampa of The 519 taking the time to discuss the Church-Wellesley community, the challenges the neighbourhood is currently navigating, and some of…

TPL Panel: “Art & Artists During COVID-19.”

Next week! I’ll be participating in a panel for Toronto Public Library as part of their virtual Pride programming, talking about queerness, community, and art with fellow screenwriter writer Sarah Dollard (Dr. Who, A Discovery of Witches, Being Human, Bridgerton) and moderated by Nancy-Anne Davies. I’ll be donating my honorarium to Supporting Our Youth, an organization doing incredible work…
