Sunday Skooled: Gender Bendy Lambs of God Welcome in the UCC

Posted June 19, 2011 by Carmen

It’s often still surprising to learn of a church that is open to and affirming of the gay and lesbian community, and even more one that has any significantly developed theological stance regarding trans folk. Transgenderism continues to pose big time conundrums for our churches as they try to grapple with and develop theologies that […]

Music Video Vendredi – Gotye’s ‘Easy Way Out’

Posted March 2, 2012 by Mel

Happy Friday Music Lovers! Rating: 4.5/5 Creepy Animated Cats What I think: So, I tastefully refrained from posting Gotye’s viral ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ when it came out, because the entire world had already played the shit out of it by the time I could have.

Boy Culture: Why Coming Out Is Only Half The Battle

Posted May 30, 2012 by Elie

Too skinny for the gym rats, too hairy for the twinks, and too foreign for just about everyone else; my first experiences in Montreal’s gay village ended up being more intimidating than growing up in the aggressively ignorant environment I did in the Middle East.
