Gaylist

Work it

May, 2016

For a work-themed playlist in a gay magazine, you’re probably expecting “Work Bitch” and the new Rihanna, but this is a little more creative than that. This is a playlist for you to put on during a long day at the office when you need a little extra motivation. Put these tunes on and the […]

Top 10 Playlist

October, 2015

For this issue, I’ve created a playlist of my top 10 favourite songs. I have a tendency toward indie electro synth pop, usually from Sweden, so that’s mostly what this is. You can listen to the playlist here. It features five bonus songs that I didn’t have room for here! 1. Dragonette “Let The Night […]

Red Ride Tour Stops in Winnipeg

Queer Aboriginal Artist Shows Off at the Pyramid

May, 2015

“A hope and a prayer, flying by the seat of your pants,” is how Derksen says she manages to stay on top of all her projects. Although, there’s no denying that talent plays a big role as well.

The Ghosts and Ghouls

October, 2014

This month I’ve assembled a Halloween playlist, but you won’t find “Thriller” or “Monster Mash” here. This isn’t your average overplayed spooky playlist, these are my choices to help you throw the hippest costume party of all. 1. Nina Simone I Put A Spell On You OK, I know I said this wouldn’t be one […]

KAKI KING

pushes music’s limits with new project

July, 2014

Kaki King has incorporated light images with the sound of her guitar for her new show “The Neck is the Bridge to the Body.” In an interview with OutWords, she said she was inspired by the projection images on tall buildings. “It’s a good idea, isn’t it? So I think it just came from the […]

Brett Owen's Love Playlist

March, 2016

Listen to Brett’s playlist at 8tracks.com/havewemet. 01 Bright Light Bright Light Love Part II Bright Light x2 is Rod Thomas, a wondrous gay disco gift. He makes music that is equal parts danceable and tear-jerking. Always a winning combination, if you ask me. He has released two albums (and a duet EP with Elton John!), […]

Raising Money to Raise Awareness

Trans musician with disability aims to inspire

May, 2015

Parker Hatcher chose to meet for this Outwords interview at the St. Vital Shopping Centre McDonalds, not because he likes the fast-food joint, but because it is one of the few accessible spaces in the mall. “I surveyed St.Vital Mall on it’s accessibility and found only 9 per cent of the stores were accessible. How is […]

The Back-To-School Playlist

The Gaylist 

September, 2014

I’ll try to help make it easier to say goodbye to summer. Maybe you’re in need of a fling with a sexy classmate? Or maybe you’re planning to wear the quintessential schoolgirl outfit on your first day back. My favourite thing about the new school year is the promise of learning something, especially when it […]

Tracing the Rainbow

through the roots of electronic dance music (back when the scene had soul)

July, 2014

Club culture and electronic music have definitely come a long way since the early days of disco, where both genres are rooted. Decades before fist pumping and neon-clad frat bros typified electronic dance music, the scene was far more diverse demographically and far less visible. Attempts to document the rise of club culture and its […]
