LGBT: it’s an arrangement of letters that many of us have seen before, but for those who are unfamiliar with it, the acronym stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. As an acronym adopted by what was formerly known simply as the gay community, its purpose has been to acknowledge and highlight the diversity within […]

We are all different. You’re special and I’m special; we are all independently special in our own unique ways. Trying to conform to western society’s unrealistic views of beauty and body shape takes its toll on us mentally and physically, and it’s dangerous. For almost two years now I have gone without makeup with the […]

How could hell be any worse?: Our cover story for our April 18, 1994 issue looked at students and poverty. Clearly, not much has changed on this front.

Winnipeg singer/songwriter Greg MacPherson is heading out to the west coast to conclude his tour for his latest album, Fireball.

A meditation teacher of mine has said on numerous occasions that it’s more important to be kind than to be right. Certainly there are situations where it’s critical to communicate the right message to the right person and make sure they understand it; it may be the kind thing to do. It’s those situations in […]

Noms!: Foo worth the crowded digs

Foo is an Asian-street-food-style restaurant that will make you willingly cram yourself into a small space for some of their seriously tasty food. Located at the corner of Yates and Blanshard in the downtown core, this little building resembles what I would expect a street food shack to look like. Actually, the parking lot is […]

Queerly Forward: Assumptions are microaggressions

Filed under April 2, 2014, Columns

Chances are many queer students on campus have been faced with situations where others have made sweeping assumptions about them. Included in this list of assumptions are ones about sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, and all the others that feed annoyingly into the daily dose of microaggressions, or small acts of mostly non-physical aggression. Not only […]

Two things are going to happen this year: there will be an election in Quebec and a separation referendum in Scotland.
