That’s right, I throw parties now. Not just regular old parties either. Born Ready is a fun flirtatious playground for queers and all their friends to dance, drink, and get sweaty on the dance floor. Our first event went down at the start of April here in Toronto at Tattoo Queen West. It was a smashing success, with amazing DJs Madam D, Essence Brown, and fuckin’ Regina the Gentlelady (go LIGHT FIRES), plus projectors, photographers, and even a goddamn kissing booth! Too much fun. Some photos from the “Reality Bites” event are posted below. If you are a queer looking to party in the GTA, make sure you keep up with us on the Born Ready Facebook page! More to come my homomies!

I’m so pleased to announce the launch of my music column: Listen Queer. It’s published through The Indie Machine; a Toronto-based multimedia music series that plays a discernible role in supporting local music.
The queer community exists on foundations of love, camaraderie and genuine support. As a queer musician, I crave to translate those conventions into my exploration of music. However, as I search to discover new queer music; I find myself dissatisfied. Every LGBTQ publication has their designated “Music” section, but it’s often solely dedicated to Elton, Ani, and the Indigo Girls. It’s 2013! Where’s the new blood!?
Listen Queer is about providing a resource to discover queer-centric music and events. Through artist interviews, event coverage and ongoing news updates – readers get an inside scoop on the queer music happenings in Toronto and around the world.
