Strength in diversity

April, 2014

For the past couple of seasons, the Rainbow Harmony Project (RHP) choir has used “Stand Together” as their signature song at concerts. “Side by side we could be, growing hopes and dream. If we could stand together, we will sing forever of the dreams growing in our hearts,” and so the lyrics go. Those aren’t just cheap words for this inclusive choir; both straight and GLBTQ* members do indeed stand together, singing side by side at practices and concerts.

It’s not surprising that the Prairie Theatre Exchange (PTE) is at the heart of an ambitious revamp of the neighborhood’s surrounding area to make it into a sport and hospitality entertainment district.

All’s fair in fairs

December, 2013

We always wonder if life is better elsewhere, or how Winnipeg compares to other cities. In this recurring column, we will compare and contrast what life is like for three 25 to 35-year-old gay men in different cities around the world. This month, we travel from London to Guadalajara, by way of Winnipeg, only to be reminded that every city has its gays, trying to live a socially active and interesting life. So live here, live anywhere, the moments we seek are out there.
