Flare Magazine: “Do We Really Need Another Season of You?”

Flare Magazine just ran a piece I wrote about my very complex feelings for the show YOU. Do I enjoy the series, with all of its riveting twists and turns? Yes. Do I have an appreciation for what the cast and crew have crafted? Absolutely. But do I find it to still be problematic in…

Toronto Star: “Meet Me Under the Clock!”

Inspired by a film project I’ve been working on the last little while, I wrote a piece for The Toronto Star on the old clock tower on Yonge Street, and its (rather infamous) role in local queer history. This has been a subject very close to my heart! You can find the article here.

Toronto Star Piece in The New York Times

My recent Toronto Star piece on a racist costume from my past was referenced by essayist Pico Iyer in an article on chronocentrism for The New York Times a few days ago.   Iyer’s article delves into my discussion of the racist costume as part of a larger conversation about how we reframe the past…

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…
