  • Thank you, Goddess

    BDSM requires skillful and intentional communication. It is the ménage à trois of intimacy, tenderness and vulnerability. 

  • We can get through this together

    Though thousands gathered in Winnipeg this summer and stood for Justice 4 Black Lives and Indigenous Lives Matter rallies, the very act of protesting coupled with the instances of racism and prejudice that continue to plague this city can make this feel all for nought and can have a negative effect on people's mental health. 

  • Canada is not immune to white supremacy

    After the senseless murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, protesters across the world contine to fight against police brutality and demand justice for the countless BIPOC who have been racially profiled, assaulted and murdered.

  • Horoscopes

    Your horoscope for Thursday, April 2, 2020.

  • Feeding diaspora

    I immediately swoon at the love, lineage, healing and pleasure that undertones writing and art by People of Colour involving food. Food and love are both so potent. They are embodied experiences marked by longing, sustenance, nourishment, orientation and legacy.

  • My identity does not need your approval

    Most days, I don’t even know who I am. Similar to the way that people sometimes Google themselves, I often review my Facebook timeline. Who am I? What qualities do I present? Are my political memes dank enough?

    Writers have a talent for tapping into imagination, and despite their chosen genre, skillfully put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to create an immersive reading experience. Though their talents are displayed on each page, their background and journey into the literary world are often reserved for memoirs.

    The World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference (WISPC) is coming to Winnipeg. Originally scheduled for August, in light of COVID-19, the conference will be postponed until a later date.

  • Winnipeg’s Artists of Colour

    Many of Winnipeg’s marginalized artists are multitalented people who fall into a wide spectrum of racial categories. Their stories need to be heard, their accomplishments deserve celebration and more work needs to be done to create a more inclusive and truly diverse space.

  • Kultivation cultivates Filipino culture

    After a successful – but COVID-19 interrupted – popup in the Garden City Shopping Centre, Kultivation Festival, which celebrates the contemporary art of Filipino people in Winnipeg, will take place in the Exchange District in June.

  • Media skewing Wet’suwet’en

    “Wet’suwet’en, what do you think about the protesting?” I was asked, the only Indigenous person at a Leap Year fire.

  • Halfway to somewhere

    The idea of walking a mile in someone else’s shoes is a common metaphor for how people should empathize with one another. I see this show up in little ways in my everyday conversations. When a friend tells me something they’re struggling with, I find myself responding with a story of a situation I’ve been in that is comparable in order to identify with their struggle.

  • M(étis)anitoba 150

    The first two months of the new decade have seen a slew of initiatives branded with the Manitoba 150 logo.
