  • 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.

  • Streaming IRL horror

    It’s the spooky season, which means many people are filling their streaming queues with horror movies. But it can be tiring to revisit the same slasher films and ghost stories every year, especially when the news is scarier than anything David Cronenberg or Jordan Peele could conjure.

  • In law we trust

    It isn’t fair to ask marginalized communities for lawful protest when laws often largely miss the mark on human rights.

  • Late-night shows are like university students

  • Thank you, Goddess

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

  • Horoscopes

    Those born with the Scorpion as their rising, sun or moon sign have a mysterious, intuitive, and power-wielding dynamic in the core of their personality, an echo of the shadowy Autumn season. The primary Scorpio strengths can be found in their devoted, determined, and observant natures. They are hard workers, often artistic, and deeply committed to study and research. You can count on the Scorpion to see whatever they have committed to through to the end.

  • OK, Boomer
