WHEN:Friday, 2 pm
WHERE: Sherbourne and Carlton
CLOTHING: "From the waist up, I'm wearing Value Village (1319 Bloor West, 416-539-0585, and others) fashions. The orange and white checked shirt was $2.99 and the slightly scratchy green V-neck, which was knitted in Montreal, was $4.99. I got my olive green twill jeans in Prince William, Virginia, at Marshalls, an American version of Winners,a deal at $12 U.S. I bought my Aldo shoes for $20 at the Dixie Outlet Mall (1230 South Service, Mississauga, 905-278-7492), and my belt for $5 U.S. at a store on Hawthorne Boulevard in Portland, Oregon. It took a lot of searching, but I found my beautiful brown watch at Storm in London, UK (also in Toronto at 292 Queen West, 416-340-8579), for 20 quid. My mild body modification consists of a couple of tattoos and a pair of stainless steel earrings, both done at Passage (473 Church, 416-929-7330). My silver chain, a gift from an ex-girlfriend, was purchased at Red Pegasus (628 College, 416-536-3872). This $60 silver bracelet comes from Trinidad, and my mother gave me this ring on the morning of her cancer surgery. That was six years ago, and thankfully she survived, but I still got to keep the ring."
HAIR: "Every five days I take out my cordless clippers and give myself a shave in the shower. Now I have it down to about 10 minutes."
MY STYLE: "Half dyke, half fag."
INTO: "My work in Canada's first primary health care program especially for queer communities. We provide a range of health services including medical care and counselling for lesbians, gay men, bisexual people and transgendered and transsexual folks. I'm also into planning filmmaking and photography projects and playing football - sorry, soccer, with the lezzies."
