I just got woken up by a call from CCAC, asking me how wide my wheelchair is so that when they kick me off their services, do to the fact that I’m “wheelchair bound but can leave the house” they want to make sure I can fit into the doors of the clinic they’re sending me to once a week. I guess the clinic isn’t very wheelchair accessible.

Am I the only one that sees the irony in this?

Because I’ve been a little on the self-conscious side lately (the usual pointless reasoning), so I drew this to feel better. Might do some more sexy disability pin ups in the future.

Warning: the following may be too badass for you to handle.

Today the Conservatives filed out of the House of Commons in Ottawa early. The NDP followed. Moments later, all the NDP MPs came back into the house and took their seats. They had realized that, with time still on…

Please stop gendering menstrual products. Not every person who menstruates is feminine. There is nothing inherently feminine about menstruation so there is no need to call menstrual products ‘feminine’ products. Thank you. #stopgenderingmenstruation #gender

This is probably the most barrier-free washroom I’ve ever come across.

My mother’s grief therapist just died. This is possibly the most ironic thing I’ve ever heard.

Geoff is a person whose personal style possesses a dynamic quality to it, something which mirrors their equally dynamic personality. Being a Gender Queer person currently studying Equity and Sexual Diversity Studies, they stress that “everything they engage is political, and that their style has continuously changed over the years according to how they politicize at the moment”. 

  • Check out their personal Website that includes their personal writings here.
  • Their collaborating Zine Project with their partner Clementine here.
  • Their personal Tumblr.

They describe their style as “Urban, casual yet vibrant”, and cite growing up loving Hip Hop, Grunge and Sports culture as being the defining influences to the way they dress - their wardrobe consisting of many basketball jerseys, bucket hats, snapbacks ,and various pairs of Jordan and Nikes.

As a proud Torontonian, they are always looking for cool new Canadian brands; the reason for that being the costly delivery rates from his favourite overseas brands such as New York’s Supreme. They started researching Toronto Urban brands, as they realised they felt more of a connection and loyalty to the City.

As a result of their specific taste, they usually choose  to order things online, or from the Toronto based Skate shop AdriftMutton Head, or American Apparel.

The day I shot them, they wore 6 different outfits:

The ultimate urbanite.

Last night I rode a streetcar for the first time in my entire 27 yrs. Toronto was suppose to get 16 of them but because of a strike only 2 were sent. Supposedly by 2019 they will all be replaced. That said by 2012 all of the subway system was to be made accessible and that still has yet to happen sooo we’ll see.
