5 places for a comic book

While at the cabin or on the beach this summer, you can hop into stories of zombies, wizards, detectives, mutants, time-travelers – all manner of hero and villain, of complex protagonist – available through your local comic book shop (a thank you to our libraries as well, but we’re giving a nod to some small businesses here). The comic business is no longer about pumping out the shallow penny dreadful, or reliant on a man in tights leaping tall buildings. Read More…

Jay and Olivia – Canadian Love Map

It’s scary to think that if you make a choice to make yourself happy it may make other people unhappy. Love is selfish. And love is selfless. This episode of the Canadian Love Map is about this balance. It’s about turning love inward and outward. You’ll meet Jay and Olivia, who will take you on a journey of discovery. About creating a unique space and helping others find their own way too.

Some say you have to learn how to love yourself before you can truly love someone else. But love is a journey. And the journey with gender isn’t about changing who you are, it’s about giving yourself space to bloom into the person you were meant to be. Read More…

Thank you💛 for loving LGBTQ young people. When I was a kid, I was SO QUEER, I was the Ultra-Qweer, the Uber, the Best and the Most. And everyone treated me like a problem. I’d walk into a room (or perhaps float in) and adults’ blood pressure would go up. Knowing looks would be exchanged.✨I seemed to bring up everyone’s issues.✨Eventually, I assumed I was the problem. But not today, and that’s because of you. Happy Pride!Today, I’m so grateful for you. Not only do you NOT have issues with me, you come on my page and PRAISE me! And you give me ATTENTION, my favorite thing✨Thank you for giving attention and kindness to young LGBTQs too. Thanks for your “more than a No Big Deal approach” to us all; thanks for your embracing kindness. It means so much.💛💛💙☺️💚#trans #pridemonth #nonbinary #genderfluid #genderqueer #lgbtq #gaypride ...
