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 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…

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…

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…

There are only so many more times I can look into those dreamy eyes or marvel at that perfect nose or appreciate his perfectly manicured feet before critical thought ceases in my homosexual brain. Just look at…

Batman Gets Hitched

Remember when I made that whole post about the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle? And I unpacked the brilliant ballroom scene from Batman Returns, but used it as a way to illustrate their perfect-but-imperfect love and how it played a formative role in my development as a young gay male? I even said…

Saggy Ass Sad Girl Christmas

Today, I put up my Saggy Ass Sad Girl Christmas Tree. She leans to the side and turns on and off without notice, but so do I, I guess? At least the job is done. I’m not a big Christmas person. I’ve debated if this started later in life, or whether it has always been…

“Bro, Do You Even Lift?”

If you really think about it, the gym is strange. It’s a place where humans are encouraged to divorce themselves from the higher functioning and more cerebral tasks of society, and are instead told to tap into their most base and animal instincts. It’s space dedicated to physicality, where the NATURAL (but highly gendered) ORDER…
