Another Life on NETFLIX

The first season of Netflix original ANOTHER LIFE has launched! I was lucky enough to work as a story editor on the first season, and being part of a sci-fi series has always been a dream since I was a wee little nerd. Space ships! Aliens! Intense interpersonal relationships! Plus, the show stars BATTLESTAR GALACTICA…

Slasher: Solstice on NETFLIX

Exciting news!  The newest season of Netflix’s anthology horror series SLASHER is released today and… I wrote the sixth episode! Woo hoo! It was a fantastic experience, with an incredible cast bringing the whole enterprise to life, and shepherded by smarter minds than me.  I am deeply grateful to be a part of the process,…

Melodrama as Revolution

This past May, I saw the Broadway production of Mart Crowley’s seminal queer classic The Boys in the Band at Booth Theater in New York City. And then, this June, I saw FX’s Pose, a new drama series about NYC ball culture in the eighties. You’re probably wondering why I’ve mentioned these two seemingly unrelated things in close…

Return of The Mack

Toronto really only has two seasons. One is the bone-shatteringly cold winter, during which no one exits their overpriced condos and the city grinds to a miserable halt. The other is skin-melting summer, during which everyone leaves their overpriced condos and EVERYTHING HAPPENS ALL AT ONCE. The city is abuzz with patios and festivals and…

The End of Endings

Remember the poster for Six Feet Under‘s final season? The show’s trademark hearse, riding into the sunset, with “Everything. Everyone. Everywhere. Ends.” beneath it? It was a bold statement, and one that not only restated the series’ theme, but also prepared viewers for both the conclusion to the series AND the main characters’ lives. Definitive….

Space Channel Interview

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I feel very lucky to be included in The Secret Loves of Geeks, a Bedside Press/Dark Horse Comics collection of short stories and comics from a number of very talented creators — including Canadian literary giant (and occasional figure of controversy) Margaret Atwood! (I continually mention this fact if just…

Huffington Post Piece on Bruce McArthur

As I’ve mentioned before on the blog, the Bruce McArthur case is one that has hit fairly close to home for me. As a queer man of colour, and one who fits the profile of some of his alleged victims, I have found myself angered by the way the case has been handled by both…

The Secret Loves of Geeks

It has been a long time coming, but The Secret Loves of Geeks is finally out this month on February 13th! A collection of prose stories and comics from Dark Horse Comics and Bedside Press, it includes my story “Love in Alderaan Places” alongside works by Margaret Atwood, Mariko Tamaki, Trina Robbins, Amy Chu, Marley…

It Gets Worse

Since the last time I posted about the Bruce McArthur case, additional info has been revealed that is… well, grim, to say the least. Alongside the established first degree murder charges relating to the deaths of Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen, McArthur is now charged with the murders of three more men – Majeed Kayhan,…
