do you know r. fitzgibbon?

There's this alarming notion in the gay community that prides itself on being fit, muscular. If you don't fit the stereotype, you are, to some extent, marginalized from that community. Don't fret, though, there are a plethora of "tribes" that you can fall under. Though, the criteria in itself is irrational and will crumble like the recently cancelled Looking. What constitutes a bear? A jock? A twink?

Is Ryan Fitzgibbon a twink?

you say normcore, i say die

A freelance graphic designer-cum-writer-cum-et al recently invited me to her house warming party on the west end of Toronto a few weeks back. I kindly accepted the invitation and arrived fashionably late. I'm still processing the events of that night as to why this post is arriving rather, um, casually not on time. When you think west end of Toronto, you think The Drake Hotel, fixed gear bicycles, a plethora of coffee shops and maybe, normcore?

Is normcore still a trend?
