Bans, Boycotts and Where Do We Go From Here? I

Dearly loved Queer/Trans Communities, family and friends! Let's all pause for a moment and take a deep breath and, before we do anything else, let's all acknowledge that, despite what we may have heard in the media, the current conflict in our community of communities is far from being the greatest crisis we have faced in 25 years. We survived The Great Shirtlessness Debate, we’ll survive this too. We may even discover that this crisis is the opportunity we need to make our communities and organizations more sustainable, inclusive and community service oriented than they’ve ever been before.

posted by Wayves volunteer 2016-10-12

By Malcolm Norton

October 7, 2016

I attended the Pride AGM and I have a very different view from most of the posts I have read. The one article duplicated and published by every media outlet from CBC to C.H. to Metro and the admittedly biased report published on the Halifax Examiner do not tell the whole story.

The Coup at the Pride Meeting

" “#StraightWhitePride Wins Again”

The short version of what happened at the Halifax Pride Society’s AGM is that cisgendered straight people organized to vote down motions by LGBTQ+ people, leading to the walkout of most of the BIPOC (Black/Indigenous/People of Colour) community and many members of the Queer and Trans community."

"In How Do I Love Thee?, Florence Gibson Macdonald has created a rich and passionate love story that arcs the role that addiction plays in artistic expression and inspiration. Focusing on a fictionalized retelling of the whirlwind romance between poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barratt-Browning, Gibson folds humour, hope, and passion into this love story about two driven artists. At its core, it is a play about love in all of its forms."

"[Adam Myatt] reminds me a bit of Woody Allen circa 'Annie Hall' in how he nurtures his neuroses, but Allen on qualudes. ... Oddly, it's probably be the perfect show for a first date!" ... "Kevin Hartford's queer credentials are rock solid. However in Tunnel of Love  he's taking a stab at hetero rom com, or is he?  Is there such a genre as existential, romantic comedy?"

Wayves Talks to Openly Gay By-Election Candidate Rod Wilson

I’m running is because I think the stars have aligned and we have a real opportunity for change. We’ve got a federal and provincial government that are talking to each other. The Conservatives would never meet with the provinces on health care or anything else. Nobody was communicating. Now there’s been a shift in municipal government towards housing, I feel there’s an amazing opportunity in the next two to four years, If we don’t maximize that opportunity who knows when it’s going to come around again, when all three governments can align on health care, housing, and transportation.
