So I’m sitting in a coffee shop talking with a brother about a trip he took to Africa to work in a village. I was a little annoyed by his comments that more black kids should be taken to Africa so they can see how good they have it in America, but I decided not […]

Sunday Skooled: I’m Not Homophobic, But The Bible Says It’s Wrong

Posted July 10, 2011 by Carmen

Posted October 26, 2012 by Caitlin

The Halloween Dilemna: either you’re the type to scope out the Halloween parties you (or your better connected friends) have been invited to, or you’re the type who opts to stay in, convinced that it’s because you want to see all of the adorable trick-or-treaters who will be knocking at your door (aka intending to […]

“Your Depression Is A Choice”: My Story of Illness & Mental Health

Posted July 7, 2011 by Steven

Roughly two and half years ago, I was diagnosed with two major illnesses, not of the mind but of the body. Both of these rather colourful diseases are associated as “gay” illnesses.
