Thank You – Charlene/Lorna Evol

It has taken me a great while to find the peace to say the words that I knew I needed to. Many long dark nights and cold days have brought me to this place to speak to you. I'm sure you are expecting searing words to pour from the pain you caused me. It would … Continue reading Thank You – Charlene/Lorna Evol

I Love Your Colours

Some of my strongest bonds have been forged with people who have cracked the foundation of my comfort zone. We rarely agree on things like politics and protests, but we do agree that words hold power and art saves lives. We all view life differently; through eyes coloured by our own circumstances, whether those be … Continue reading I Love Your Colours

Modern Day Savages – Jason Kynge

Fuck fuck fuck..... Oh yes you read that right....because sometimes that's the only word that is fitting for this life....and the things that happen in it....what were you expecting....some grouping of words...eloquent perhaps... not this time....anyone on the frontline of living will get it....this is for them.

Let It Burn – Jason King

I'm sitting outside....gazing at the night sky....counting stars....I’ve always had a love affair with them....it’s quiet....except for the crickets....and this large dog on the other side of a fence barking at me....I bite back dammit....this makes me think also I'm actually a little excited for my nervous breakdown....I’m only half joking about this.... mainly because … Continue reading Let It Burn – Jason King

Winds of Change

      I have nurtured the seeds of resistance planted in my bones long ago. Roots grown swift and mighty, a solid foundation of iron stands me firm and holds me true. Vines of resilience climb the length of my spine-straight. Blooming down arms of hope and hands of peace, raised in wait, to … Continue reading Winds of Change

My Tribe

I love the heavy ones. I feel the loud ones. And I am the chaotic ones. The ones who scream to be heard over their own raging thoughts, while the boring ones tell them to hush... Those are my people.  

The Ugliest War of You 

Absolutely amazing. This is exceptional.   I live in a place where people say “faggot”  as causal as one would say, “hello.” A passing respectful nod from a stranger  is common, although just under his brea… Source: The Ugliest War of You 

You Don’t Know Me – Dianne Hoffmeyer

    You think you know me? You don't. You think I'm the same woman from a few years back? Not even close. You think I'm still quiet, subservient, timid and fragile? Afraid Not. You think I'm just going to let you do and say what you want to me? Think again...   I can … Continue reading You Don’t Know Me – Dianne Hoffmeyer

Crazy, Cancer & Chuckles

Last month Stephanie Bennett-Henry and I wrote something together that touches on Stigma. I was reluctant to post it for (get this) fear of offending people. How ridiculous is that? Pretty ridiculous considering the disgusting comments and jokes that people are making today, in regard to Sinead O'Connor. I swear to God, some of you need … Continue reading Crazy, Cancer & Chuckles

Make It Count – Jason King

    I told my girlfriend today that I loved her....and she didn't say it back....( I think I heard a gasp from the audience)....so why am I not freaking out....or losing my shit....or curled up in the fetal position crying about it....well for one my ego isn't that fragile....two....I know she's falling in love … Continue reading Make It Count – Jason King
