Sexy 17th Century Murderess' Musical Tale Opens in Halifax!

"[Mimi] is a fun show. It's entertainment!", says Kyle Gillis. But like so many modern musicals, such as Next to Normal and Spring Awakening, Mimi is not afraid of tackling dark subject matter, as its subtitle A Poisoner's Comedy suggests. Indeed, from the sexily polyamorous opening quartet "To Come, To Be" through the ironic ensemble number, The City of Love, (during which Mimi poisons Parisian tourists and citizens), sex and love take many forms."  More ...

Observations on LGBTQ Spirituality Study

"Perhaps one of the most surprising conclusions to emerge from this study is that, despite the age range among participants (20 to 68), there does not appear to be a difference in the number or the intensity of negative experiences. One might have thought that a drop in the attendance at churches and the opening of dialogue with the community at large, by some faith groups, might have made for a better experience for younger LGBTQ members, but that does not seem to be the case." - J.

LGBTQ Spirituality Researched in Halifax

"[We] heard over and over again was that it is not easy to be ‘out’ as spiritual (let alone religious) in LGBTQ communities. People feel excluded, marginalized and stigmatized if they speak their spiritual beliefs. They survived faith traditions unwilling to accept their queerness, and now face queer communities unwilling to accept their spiritual selves. There is a silencing, and a lot of aloneness."

Change in Established Churches? Eldon Hay Sees Hope.

"For a quarter century, I've talked to persons - parents, sons, daughters, friends - about the dislike, distrust and disapproval of "queers". Atheists and Anglicans, Baptists and Brethren, Catholics and Orthodox, Presbyterians and United - people of no religious stripe to those deeply committed - formed a largely unified cacophony of homophobia. Quakers and Unitarians were the sole, discordantly loving voices. Over the course of those years, there has been a vast sea change.
