What's good for the goose isn't good enough for the gander! Yet again, Rob Ford proves himself to be a liar and a hypocrite of monumental proportions. Are you a taxpayer in Toronto? Do you know with whom Rob Ford is meeting right now?...Show More Summary
Behold, the latest atrocity by writer Christie Blatchford. After studying for weeks the impacts of macho men who allegedly massacred their daughters to protect their honour, she's now lamenting the low number of macho male rapists and child murderers in Toronto. Show More Summary
Voters in Toronto's suburbs complained the former Miller administration ignored them and only spent money downtown, so they elected Rob Ford, who killed Miller's Transit City plan which would've built rapid transit lines throughout the suburbs. Show More Summary
Yes, the provincial government has introduced tough new anti-bullying legislation. The legislation includes provisions which will ensure that LGBT students and their straight friends who wish to form Gay-Straight Alliance-type groups in all publicly-funded schools will be able to do so.

Disgusting. Nothing surprises me about these neo-con dopes in the Conservative Party of Canada anymore. Maybe this was Lethbridge MP Jim Hillyer's imitation of Marc Lepine?
This scene and this episode of 'Designing Women' meant so much to me when it first aired in the late 1980s. I was a closeted teenager living in homophobic and AIDS-phobic times, quite used to sad depictions on television and elsewhere of effeminate, weak gay men dying like helpless victims from AIDS.

I am so glad to see 'Movember' come to an end. Yes, raising awareness and funds in the fight against prostate cancer is a great cause and I'm glad they raised so much of it in Canada and elsewhere this month. The problem with 'Movember', at least for me, is it encourages men to grow disgusting and outdated facial hair. Show More Summary
This is a great 'It Gets Better' video by Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, proving yet again he's the right person for the job as leader of this great, dynamic and diverse province. It's nice to have a premier who stands up for all students and is willing to take action in government to make our schools safer places. Show More Summary
Despite his previous attacks on Nelson Mandela and longtime moronic behaviour, Tory MP Rob Anders has been continually protected by the central Tory brass around Stephen Harper from ever being challenged for his free ticket to Parliament...Show More Summary
I'm very glad to read that the Toronto District School Board is trying to hold PC Leader Tim Hudak accountable for his party's disgusting, misleading and ‘homophobic’ flyer published during the recent Ontario election campaign. I blogged...Show More Summary
I love it when this happens. Not only does the LGBT community get to shatter some stereotypes about athletes, we also get a new and VERY HOT hero! David Testo, a 30-year-old midfielder who played for the Montreal Impact and Vancouver Whitecaps FC, revealed in a Radio-Canada broadcast Thursday morning that he is gay. Show More Summary
This week's tragic death of cyclist Jenna Morrison, a pregnant, 38-year-old mother and wife, in Toronto's west-end has really hit home for me. Morrison died at the corner of Sterling Road while turning west on her bicycle onto Dundas, a turn I also make on a regular basis on my bicycle as I live in the very same area. Show More Summary
Enough said. Great video!
The case of Saskatchewan resident Bill Whatcott, who published and distributed in 2001 and 2002 some virulent hatred against LGBT people, is now before the Supreme Court of Canada. In his case, the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission found Whatcott guilty of spreading hatred and fined him $17,500 dollars, which he refused to pay. Show More Summary
Have a watch of this video shot by yet another talented, beautiful, young gay man whose life was cut short this weekend by suicide. Every gay man understands the pain and isolation that Jamie Hubley expressed on his blog recently (see the image borrowed from Towleroad.com below). Show More Summary
Like many, I've heard the rumours about the lovely Zachary Quinto being gay for years. I'm thrilled that the actor best known for his roles as Spock in J.?J. Abrams’s 2009 rendition of Star Trek and his breakout role in the TV show Heroes has made it official. Show More Summary
Once again, we get weird, illogical reasoning from weak, adolescent Tory leader Tim Hudak in reaction to the Greater Toronto Area's overwhelming rejection of him and his party. He's now calling the huge Liberal win in the G.T.A. 'unhealthy.'The...Show More Summary
I'm glad to see this story has taken off in the mainstream media. This issue will be the straw that breaks that camel's back for Tory support in Ontario, I predict. When asked yesterday about the homophobic flyers being distributed by PC candidates, which contain complete falsehoods about plans for the provincial curriculum, Tim Hudak defended them. Show More Summary
Thanks to Warren Kinsella who posted about this issue today. If you needed further proof that Tim Hudak's Ontario P.C. party has been taken over by the Tea Party, check out this disgustingly hateful and misleading pamphlet on the right. Show More Summary
I've had a love-hate relationship with Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty for a while. I still haven't fully forgiven him for the 2007 Ontario referendum fiasco, in which he hobbled the once-in-a-generation chance to reform our First-Past-The-Post voting system. Show More Summary
