Kai Cheng Thom is a writer, performer, educator and community worker based in Toronto, unceded Indigenous territory. a note on bullies and bullying. I imagine my mother suspected as much but such things were not understood (effeminacy and its ugly neighbour homosexuality in particular) and as such, deep shadows were banished. Peter and his cohorts on the gay liberation front organized a protest rally. The Saskatchewan Pride Network gratefully acknowledges funding from the Saskatchewan Arts Board as well as a partnership with the Saskatchewan Festival of Words to make this event possible.
Growing Up: Premiere experience gay moose jaw
We were required to shower communally (as in one big room). Participants will experiment with the use of story tools, including meditation, visualization, play, story-listening, and group creation. We began our march at the train station (now the liquor store) 95 strong and fierce. To this day as far as I know it was me, my lifelong friend and straight fellow native Darcy, a few lesbians with paper bags over their heads and 90 or so nonnative bodies joined in exquisite solidarity. Yes, MJ was and still is part of the Canadian Bible belt (although by American standards, our Christians are generally more polite).
In due course, my devastated mother Kate had to find work and I became one of the first latchkey kids of my generation. My English professor was Peter Millard this openly gay, brilliant, pied piper of a man asked me to join a group he had initiated called the Gay Academic Union.

Homophobia is an anti-story, an unstory; it erases and diminishes our bodies and rips away our stories. In addition to homophobia transphobia, concepts such as racism, ableism, and other forms of oppression will be discussed, so participants should come prepared to challenge themselves. I left the psychological theorists behind and began reading fiction, history, art history and philosophy.
