dealing with DIFFERENT FAITHS

May, 2016

Living in such a multicultural society, we all know folks who have religious and spir- itual beliefs that are different from our own. Luckily, our generation is overall a lot more accepting of these differences than the ones before us. After all, what people do privately is their own business if it’s not hurting anyone, […]

YWG Unique Winnipeg jobs

May, 2016

This city already has a rich array of quirky and inspired landmarks, but some interesting signature sites have popped up in Winnipeg over the last few years. Their structures and what they house have our imaginations spurred. Behind each is the potential for a unique or quintessential Winnipeg job. Or, one would assume, there are jobs relating […]

Studies have revealed that up […]

YWG Sacred sites

May, 2016

We, the queer community, might be forgiven if we have less than positive reactions to religious sites as they still often house repressive congregations. Nonetheless, Winnipeg has many sacred sites that have been reinvented to truly become places of significance indiscriminately and in a welcoming way to everyone. Some were intentional, like the West End Cultural […]

Should sex work be regulated?

May, 2016

The sex trade is a matter of perspective. Some, usually based on religion, feel there’s no place for it in “decent” society. Any form of sexual intimacy must be confined to a heterosexual couple within the framework of a “proper” marriage. Others, like me, take a far more open view. When we look at the […]

Hot Topic

March, 2016

Article by Danelle Granger From a queer woman’s perspective, I wish I could say that PDA is great. There is no better feeling than kissing my partner in public and no one looking twice. Except, more times than not, people stare or look at me funny, and I can feel their judgment. As a queer […]
