Come on, comrades, let’s get sickening! Here are your hot take-aways on what I’ve been reading this week.
I wrote for Torontoist about Jewish progressive action, the Jewish fight against fascism, and how the past hasn’t gone anywhere.
I wrote for Torontoist about the ongoing battle over Pride Toronto at City Council, “hyper-diverse” queer communities, and the dangers of making cheap political gestures.
I teamed up with my friend Vincent Mousseau to write for CBC about Pride, the police, and what inclusivity means for queer people today.
I wrote for Torontoist about shelter closures, Toronto’s ongoing housing and poverty crises, and City Hall austerity.
I wrote for Mic about Pride Toronto, the unduly powerful police in this city, and Pride’s changing history and legacy.
