Glad Day Bookshop, the world’s oldest LGBTQ bookstore, is reinventing itself as a cafe/bar/bookstore/community space in a fabulous location right on Church Street in the heart of Toronto’s gay village, and they need some help.
But if Glad Day is new to you, let us be the first to tell you it is an important institution in Toronto, but also for our community worldwide. Glad Day is one of the few bookshops that is not only still around, but thriving.
Their book sales are up, which counters the general trend of bookshops in the age of Amazon, but transitioning the business to a larger, better-situated space takes some extra cash. Please consider chipping in a few dollars to help them grow. Donate to their Indiegogo campaign here.
WIGGLE is a wearable art and performance extravaganza thrown by Michael Venus and the House Of Venus that invites artists and designers to create fantasy wigs and headpieces that are then worn in the fashion element of the avant garde variety show. Combined with innovative performances and a fashion-forward crowd, this show is an out-of-this- world event celebrating all things ‘Wig’.
The other-worldly event will finally land in Montreal this SATURDAY, MAY 21st (their 21st edition of the celebration) with the legendary Joey Arias. For decades Joey has led the way in the New York performance art and underground club scene in the late seventies and eighties. In the nineties he later became a fixture around the globe as an international Drag artist ‘channeling” Billie Holiday with his awesome live performances.
Hosting the event is Never Apart, a non-profit organization in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, determined to bring about social change and spiritual awareness through programming with global reach and impact. WIGGLE will be a fundraiser for Never Apart’s LGBT programming, so make sure to check it out and support the youngsters out there!

women r kinda absent from the junos this year. no female noms for album, artist, engineer or producer of the year etc.
I don’t expect recognition, but I believe there were qualified women besides myself for many categories.
I can’t help but feel that if women were equally rewarded for technical work they would feel inclined to participate more
Anyhow I’ll probably have to delete these tweets and there r way bigger problems on planet earth but that’s my 2 centz
Example of sick female Canadian producers off the top of my head: wondagurl, Allie x, mozarts sister.. I know theres more but I’m sleepy x

Not to be confused with Princess Amidala, an explanation for the title of Toronto-based DJ Clattyshack‘s latest titled mix is:
AMYGDALA: Emotional reactions to your surroundings are fabricated within the amygdala. here, emotional memories are formed, creating your perception of a significant existence. before the cortex has time to process incoming stimuli rationally, the amygdala has already decided how you will react, and how that memory will resonate throughout your brain for the rest of your life.
Check out Clattyshack‘s mix of eclectic deep and techy house vibes above, and create some warm memories for yourself on a cold winter Monday.
