Dear future self,

No matter how big the welt on your gets, do not search Google Images for spider bites if you intend on ever sleeping.

until-i-find-you:

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.

Anonymous said: Heya I've got a question! I'm 17 and I've been having lots of trouble walking lately, for the past 7 months I've been walking with a crutch. And sometimes I need to use a wheelchair for long distances. Now this thursday I am going to buy a decent one, to use more often because my legs keep giving in (we don't know what's wrong, might be MS) now I feel like a lot of people judge me when they see me in the chair & with my crutch. How do I cope with that? Sorry for bothering!

Not a bother at all! I wish there was an obvious coping mechanism to deal with those feelings of being judged. Honestly though, people are generally pretty self involved and I don’t mean that in a bad way but really people are more likely to be thinking about what they’ll be eating for lunch than actually judging you. People are also curious and will probably look in your direction because you stand out but that doesn’t mean they’re actually judging you. If you feel those eyes staring for a little too long, look at them right back and don’t think of it as people judging you think of it as people actively displaying ignorant, ableist, ass hole behaviour and get angry about it. Anger can be empowering (when channeled productively). It’s fucked up. It’s not right. Let them know it. If you feel self conscious try and do what you can to feel your most confident before heading out the door, as that can go a long way. Wear a shirt you feel good in. Dye your hair pink! Anything that makes you feel better about how the world sees you. Hope this was at least somewhat helpful. Good luck! =)
