“Each Death is a Preventable Tragedy” is the cover story for THIS Magazine’s Pride issue. It tells the stories of five trans women lost in the city of Toronto, and exposes the role of police and other city institutions in denying them justice.
I wrote for A.Side about how makeup isn’t feminist—but it doesn’t really need to be—and how “empowerment” works as a cool grab for cash.
Hot Take-Aways is a weekly roundup of the most interesting media of the minute (to me, at least).

The third and gaggiest instalment of my media criticism series is here! Also, Hot Take-Aways is now available as a newsletter. Prepare to scream.

I wrote for A.Side about Sam Smith, the pressure of publicity, and giving nonbinary people the opportunity to tell our own stories on our terms.
