Representation

13th June 2015 | 0 Comments

I’ll admit, as a former white guy, I never quite grasped the importance of representation, and not just representation, but positive representation. For the record, in this entry, I’m talking specifically about representation in the media. We’ve all seen the token people of color in movies and TV shows, never important characters, usually fairly deficient […]


Full circle

It’s nice to be back out here in Victoria, a place that I wrote about a few times three years ago, a special place for me. Also, the place that he died. When I tell my story, I often say that he went to Victoria and never came back, I came back instead. After my […]


Cyclical Meanderings…. part 11…. Pills

5th May 2015 | 0 Comments

It’s a thought I’ve had before, just came into a bit more clarity today. I take a lot of medication¬†each day, and I’m heading to my pharmacist tomorrow to renew my prescriptions and add yet another pill to my daily routine. Granted, two of the pills I take are for my back problems, I could […]


A conversation with a four year old

11th March 2015 | 0 Comments

I went to see a friend of mine last night to catch up, wonderful guy, married to a lovely woman, and they happen to have one of the coolest, smartest, most mind-blowingly awesome four year olds in existence. While chatting over dinner, can’t really recall exactly how it came up, the whisky was flowing well, […]


a funny thing happened yesterday….

So after a friends birthday dinner last night we all headed to this dance club / bar (never been to these types of places so I don’t even know how to categorize it) to have a few and do some dancing. It was 90’s night that night, so even though it wasn’t my type of […]


What it feels like dating as a trans person

23rd January 2015 | 2 Comments

There is this club, it’s huge, it’s ridiculously huge, and pretty much everyone you know enjoys going there. Some go occasionally, some go often and make it a big part of their lives. Did I say how huge it is?, we’re talking multiple Olympic installations here, it would probably take you a couple hours to […]


My Body

21st January 2015 | 2 Comments

I have a friend who I’ve known since I was 19. Well, friend may be stretching it, when I first knew him, I was the guy who was dating the girl that lived across the street, the girl who had been a close family friend and who considered this guy and his partner as surrogate […]


Cyclical meanderings….. part 8….. Dating

12th December 2014 | 0 Comments

As I happen to be in a poly relationship, in love with a woman who is legally married, of course the idea of dating other people is on my mind. Furthermore, this is something that my girlfriend is actively encouraging me to do, I’m still not very comfortable with the whole concept of poly, and […]


AMAB / AFAB

23rd November 2014 | 0 Comments

These terms started being used maybe a year or two, or at least, that’s when I first came across them. I’ve never been one for overt politeness, I prefer raw truth, and therefore always had an internal resistance to the whole concept of political correctness. The age that I am, I saw this phenomenon in […]


The bubbles of society

19th November 2014 | 0 Comments

We may do our best to determine who we are, our gender, but at the end of the day, it’s society that truly determines it for us. We’re always told to be ourselves, to not give a damn what other people think, it’s not always that easy unfortunately. You see yourself through the mirrors of […]
