Occupy Vancouver is starting today. Our police department makes a lot of important announcements via Twitter and NOT in person, so I strongly advise anyone Occupying with a smartphone to follow them. (During the riots, my girlfriend and I read over Twitter that the cops would be using tear gas in certain areas…from the safety of our own home. Unfortunately, many people actually in the area were unaware of this.)
Not everyone knows how to use Twitter, so here’s a quick protest-specific tutorial! (more…)
For two years, I volunteered with PlanetAhead-Condomania, a sex-positive education program within Vancouver Coastal Health. As one of their educators, I taught workshops in high school classrooms to students ranging from grades 8-10 (around ages 12-15, for non-Vancouver folks). These workshops focused on:

- effective methods of communication
- identifying and respecting personal boundaries
- giving and receiving consent (verbal and physical)
- recognizing gender stereotypes and how they affect your personal gender

The picture I posted in my previous entry (the quick blurb about sTeam) is the November photo of the calendar, and was used in the WE article! (more…)

This was stuck in my head pretty hard for the last couple of weeks. Why? Because I, too, went to San Francisco! I went and I met some people there! (more…)
A few people were puzzled by my Twitter feed last night. After remaining absent from Twitter through most of the day, I began posting frantically throughout the evening:
-Holy fucking hockey riots! Everything downtown is getting smashed and set on fire. This is embarrassing, Vancouver!
-Cops are arresting rioters downtown. Transit has been compromised and the Cambie street bridge is closed. Get out safely, everyone!
-Just saw a fight break out near Broadway and Cambie. Get home, get home! (more…)
It’s official: I’ve crossed that line where being naked in front of strangers no longer feels unusual. What a monumental step for my blossoming career!
It’s been busy lately. I recently did a photo shoot with T-Bodies for their upcoming 2012 Manomorphosis calendar (which will be printed soon!), I performed in a women & transfolks’ strip show with the lovely Miss Pussy Liquor, and I had one hell of a packed Victoria Day long weekend. (more…)
