“Rainbow set a nice scene for interviewing because you’re already feeling open and loved and safe. People were able to talk about some of the darker aspects of their lives. It was super heavy and I didn’t have the best coping strategies at 22, so it was really overwhelming emotionally for me. You have to sit there with the person and feel what they’re feeling to get a good interview.”

“A lot of the people that I interviewed were women and queer folks. Many of them opened up completely to me and that’s not something I take lightly. I wanted to get it right and I wanted to honour the fact that their experiences were oftentimes very difficult and complicated. They required time to listen and re-listen and contemplate upon.”

Nice article on CBC books, interview by Jane van Koeverden.

Matrix: Issue 91: The Mixtape

The new issue of Matrix Magazine is out. It features my story (Mr. Breakfast and his Meat) as well as some cool stuff from Buck 65 (Canadian babe of the centaur-y). On request I’ve updated the Read Me section of this site (just click on any title and it will instantly download). I’m currently en route to Brooklyn and then heading South to Rainbowland. I’ll be off the grid, so if you need me just blow a ceremonial conch!
