Proud Summer

It’s June (almost!) and with the Inside/Out festival being done and the weather getting warmer I start to think about Pride festivities.

I’ve been attending Toronto Pride since 1994. I’ve walked in the Pride Parade and  marched on Dyke Day nearly every year. This year, Trans Pride will happen for the first time ever in Toronto on June 26th, a wonderful addition to Pride weekend.

I’m very excited to be part of Pride’s literary line-up, Proud Voices, curated by Susan G Cole.  If you are in town, come and listen to my reading on Saturday June 27th at 4pm. For more details:
