I’m Here Reacting | #OurLondonFamily

Trigger Warning: This post contains discussion of the recent terrorist attack in London, Ontario and documents my experience of hearing the news. I was sitting in a warehouse in Halifax, waiting to be called to set, when I found out about the terrorist attack in London, Ontario. I heard the news from my dad, in... Continue Reading →

Chi Chi DeVayne’s Lip Sync To Remember

My partner Kelsey introduced me to RuPaul's Drag Race. My journey into relatively devout fandom started pre-pandemic, but the extra time at home has allowed for a deeper dive than might have otherwise happened. We've watched a random collection of seasons so far — I'm not going to try to name the seasons because to... Continue Reading →

I Didn’t Need Google For That

I learned something about mangoes yesterday. It isn’t anything overly profound, but it was useful to learn. Although, when I say that I learned something, I feel like I’m stretching the boundaries of the word; giving Google too much credit.

More Than a Court

Eyes catch leather as the ball floats through the air. Sidelines melt under crowded feet, headlights break the darkness, and blacktop scratches the silence. The ball hits the floor, the beat takes over, and the game begins. If you spend enough time around the last generation of White Oaks Park basketball players you’ll hear them... Continue Reading →

What the Candidates Can’t Say

I remember what this time of year was like for me. A year ago my team was starting its journey through a hacker-extended month of USC election campaigning.The experience is somewhat surreal in the first couple of days because you can't quite believe that the campaign is finally happening or that you're a candidate. Running... Continue Reading →
