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,…

The Beaverton

Yay! Excited to publish my very first piece for Canadian satirical news site The Beaverton! They’re super fabulous and sorta like the Canadian spiritual sister to The Onion. They also exist as a super hilarious television series, so check that out when you’re not reading my article at the link below: Netflix to revive family-favourite…

A Romantic at Heart

On Thursday, Toronto discovered it had a serial killer preying on gay men. Or perhaps I should rephrase that. The general population of Toronto discovered that it had a serial killer preying on gay men. Not the community itself, which had long suspected that the growing list of missing men with similar physical characteristics and…

RIP, Dana Scully

Don’t worry. The title isn’t a spoiler. I have no idea if Chris Carter intends to kill off Dana Scully on the eleventh season of The X-Files. I mean, Gillian Anderson has gone on record as saying that this season will indeed be her final performance as the beleaguered FBI agent, so if she is…

New Year, New You

I’m generally reluctant to post quotes here or on social media because, in the words of a friend, “No one happy ever posts inspirational quotes on the internet.” And it’s true! But I can attest to some level of happiness on this first day of the new year. I mean, it’s not like an extreme…

Make the Yuletide Gay

Daily Xtra just ran a piece I did on the challenges facing queer people during the holidays. You should check it out by clicking the image or link below! Why the holidays can still suck for queer people, even when you’re out Happy holidays, everyone. I just bought $30 worth of gourmet treats for the…

Things Will Get Better

2017 was a real trip, huh? But then again, so was 2016, 2015, and 2014. It has sorta been like a micro storm that started brewing in a single human life (obviously my own, as I am the center of this WordPress Universe), and then just expanded to destroy literally everything in its path. Wildfires…

Nostalgia Is A Drug

It really bugs me that there is now a backlash over The Last Jedi being a film that upends series mythology when so many Star Wars fans were critical of The Force Awakens being too derivative of A New Hope. I mean, fandoms are a fickle bunch, but… for real? You’re going to toss this…

The Past Must Die

The Last Jedi is a fascinating film. It is definitely one of the most artful blockbusters I have ever seen, with some truly astounding visuals. I mean, there’s this: And this: And this: It’s clear Rian Johnson took his time to not only revisit the rules set up by George Lucas all those years ago,…
