Unconventional Daughters is the story of an atypical Nova Scotian family inextricably linked through adoption, deception, sibling rivalries, mental health issues, personal triumphs, and battles — set against a backdrop of tumultuous times in early 20th century Canada and Sweden.
Newfoundland queer author Tony Brathwaite and artist David McConkey have collaborated to produce an art 'zine, ''dancing in the undertow."
A travel piece, to remind you that there was a time before we were stuck at home — and to make you think about what you’re going to do after.
Halifax-based travel writer Bruce Bishop has curated a perfectly queer visit to Key West for Wayves readers — we’ll have another travel piece by Bruce in early January.

Throughout its history, Wayves Magazine has operated entirely on volunteer journalism; it was necessary because the cost of printing and distributing the magazine used every scrap of cash we brought in via adverising. This worked out pretty well, though; over 25 years we published… maybe 200,000 words of very good journalism and editorial a year, over five million words of great writing altogether, and connected tens of thousands of customers with advertisers.
Every year the Halifax Anchor Archive hosts The 24 Hour Zine Challenge -- a whole bunch of people make zines in a 24-hour window; this year it'll be an online thing of course.
Wikipedia says: A zine (short for magazine or fanzine) is a small-circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images, usually reproduced via a copy machine. Zines are the product of either a single person or of a very small group, and are popularly photocopied into physical prints for circulation.
When I was a young boy, my mum worked for a man who had a ladies’ fashion shop. He sold off-the-rack wedding dresses and also made them by hand. His shop always smelled of this aftershave, as he’d walk around throwing it all over the carpet every morning. It’s a mixture of violets, roses, cinnamon, and sandalwood, and from the first moment I inhaled its heady aroma I was hooked.
On Sunday, November 1st at 6:00pm Halifax time, the Nova Scotia Rainbow Action Project (NSRAP) will host a Special General Meeting to elect new boardmembers.

The information session is Thursday, October 29, 3-4PM PDT, that's 7-8PM Halifax time.
