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…

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…

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…

Forever Yonge

“My feet tread a familiar path along Yonge, a neon circus of idling cars and roving packs of suburbanites here to enjoy something a little different. The sixties have come to Toronto two years too late, and so seven odd decades of being good atop a mud pile have left the citizens feeling antsy. I…

The Nemesis of Neglect

2017 hasn’t been a particularly good time to be a queer person in Toronto. I mean, there is still significant division within the community over the demands made by Black Lives Matter in the 2016 Pride Parade, with Pride out roughly $1.3 million this year via lost sponsorship and lowered attendance. Hanlan’s Point, a popular and…

On Being Biracial

Growing up biracial in the eighties, elderly couples used to stare at my family as we would pass in the street. Kids would ask awkward questions at school. It was almost impossible to understand myself in relation to popular culture or even my own family tree. So seeing a biracial woman become a princess and…

Men Loving Men

Maybe it’s that November chill, or the calm before the seasonal storm, or the fact that the news cycle has died down just long enough to give me a chance to reflect, but I thought I’d post something a touch more introspective on here. Off-brand, I know. I’d entertained writing a piece about the sexual…
