While I was in Toronto just recently, one of the things I did was have dinner with an aunt of mine. She’s a really cool lady, and I very much enjoy her company. She’s never batted an eye at any of the things she’s learned about me over the years, starting with the queer thing and on through non-monogamy and SM. … More a thousand small discoveries
This morning, after a meeting with a client, I found myself wandering into a secondhand bookstore downtown, tucked away on a side street I don’t usually take. It’s tiny; the whole thing could fit into my living room twice over. The person at the counter was a long-haired guy in his mid-40s, by my best … More what do women want?

This year, Montreal’s Pride is like a dying man. Every once in a while, if it hasn’t made any noise, you gotta check its pulse to make sure it’s still with us. A week ago, I heard a rumour that the whole thing was off again.
