Afew months ago my family was sitting around the dinner table when my brother and sister- in-law announced that they will be having a baby. When they told us the news, we all had tears in our eyes and we shared hugs and asked stand- ard questions, such as what they will name the baby […]

George & Kevin Baars-Wilhelm Q. How did you choose what to wear? Our wedding theme was a combination Charlie and the Chocolate factory and Alice in Wonderland.

Sex is a hot topic. Anywhere you look there’s a magazine, TV show, movie or conversation about sex. We’re so surrounded by it, yet we usually don’t see ourselves in it. How often are you walking in a mall and see a book cover or movie poster with a steamy cover featuring two men, two […]

Winnipeg comedian Chantel Marostica’s show about growing up as a lesbian and dealing with a drug addiction and mood disorder was so successful in August that she’s doing it again on Oct. 15.
