Trudeau's Liberals Promised to End the Blood Ban

Justin Trudeau's Liberal party promised to end the blood ban during his first campaign for Prime Minister. Now, the party is saying it's "complicated." In The Big Story podcast, host and CityNews journalist Jordan Heath-Rawling said that Justin Trudeau told LGBT voters that he would stop Canada's long-established ban that prohibits men who have sex with men from donating blood.

A Very Gay Ride: Celebrating an Inclusive Car Dealership

Buying a car can be a frustrating process and one that caters almost exclusively to cis men. I have purchased several vehicles over the years and have dealt with many salespeople and car dealerships in the process. But, presenting as a small-ish, freckly, pale-eyed blond female, I have been dismissed and underestimated over and over. So I was delightfully surprised then when my partner and I walked into Duncan Dodge recently.

Pride Season Isn’t Hunting Season. Can Government Support Send the Wrong Message?

Does a social media message ever get you riled up? I had a reaction to one today. It was like the Twitter bird was dragging its claws over a chalkboard. The tweet came from a federal government account called “Free to be me,” and the account bio says, “Government of Canada action on sexual orientation and gender identity and expression issues.”

Victoria Pride Primer

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues into its second year, cities across the country prepare for virtual or distanced Pride celebrations. For Victoria, they’ve taken steps into virtual celebrations for the second year in a row. Last year in 2020, the Victoria Pride Society moved a yearly and vital celebration online by producing a documentary about the origins of a very special ball game and its impact and importance in the community.

Pride Month in Canada Lasts All Summer

On June 2, the Government of Canada celebrated the fact that LGBTQ pride happens all summer long. In a post on social media, the Justin Trudeau-led government said that 'one month isn't enough,' and 'Pride Season' takes place across the country from June to September.

A Night of Drag at The Vicious Poodle

I was thrilled to be at the Vicious Poodle Tuesday night. Tuesday Drag is back in action after months of being on hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions. Tonight was the first night of drag Victoria has seen. Yeah, sure, it was pre-recorded because live performances are still restricted, but at the Vicious Poodle, drag continues to thrive, projected on screen, giving us a theatre vibe.
