Areez Katki: Bildungsroman at the Otago Museum

Otago Museum is thrilled to host Areez Katki’s acclaimed textile-based art exhibition, Bildungsroman, at the H D Skinner Annex opening on Saturday 11 January. The embroidered works explore Katki’s two, often conflicting, identities. Katki is a Parsi, an ethnoreligious group originally from Iran who fled to India during the first Muslim invasion between the 8th and 10th century. The Parsis are an opaque and insular population, traditionally only marrying within their community and keeping cent...

Paul Rice went underground to meet Russia’s LGBTQ population. ‘A Worm in the Heart’ is the result.

Director Paul Rice It’s one thing to stage a film on a set. It’s another to actually live it. Paul Rice did just that. The Irish-born director, who, at 30, now lives in San Francisco, felt a moral calling to after hearing stories of the suppression of queer people in Russia.

Chanel Golden Light Baume Essentiel Review & Swatches

Golden Light Chanel Golden Light Baume Essentiel ($45.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light copper with moderate, warm undertones paired with a glossy finish with subtle pearl. It has an emollient, wetter feel that leaves behind a shinier, glossier finish that doesn’t fully set or dry down, though it doesn’t slide around (surprisingly). The balmy quality seems to give it better spreadability, especially over base products, as I didn’t strugg...

Chasing Clarity

What does looking for clarity actually look like? Let us first note what doesn’t qualify as looking. Waiting for clarity is not looking. Sharing your lack of clarity is not looking. Distracting yourself is not looking. Only looking is looking. How can you tell if someone is looking for clarity? What would you expect that person to be doing? What activities would you classify as “looking for clarity” if someone else were doing them? Are you regularly engaging in similar activities? I ...

Sunday Firesides: Act on What You Have, to Get What You Don’t

Have you ever felt stuck in life? That you’re not progressing? You feel that to move forward, you need a new insight, a new approach, a new bit of direction. But you can’t seem to figure out what that might be. There’s a reason for this: you haven’t done anything with the knowledge and the nudges you’ve previously gotten. To unlock that which you don’t yet have, you have to take action on that which you already possess. When you act on the to-do’s which pop up in your head, by writing them dow...

I just had sober sex for the first time since high school and it was kinda awkward

After I quit drinking two years ago, I realized two things: 1. That I hadn’t had sober sex since high school and, 2. that I didn’t have a six pack. But after many fiber-based meals, early mornings, and long, intense sessions on my back, I finally fixed that first thing. At first, I confronted my lack of experience with sober sex in a healthy manner– by avoiding it and crying all the time. I avoided it because I didn’t want to know someone intimately, without a filter. As for the crying, it was ...

The HIV “bug chaser” who changed his mind

The gay men online who get off on seeking HIV infection (“bug chasers”) aren’t exactly known for their thoughtful introspection. After all, they are eroticizing something that works exactly once — and has life-long consequences. So, a tweet posted a few weeks ago from a self-titled bug chaser stunned me with its honestly and vulnerability. The Twitter account name is Bug Chaser [4.4k], with a profile that describes him as an “AIDS worshipper and death-dick glorifier.” His feed is definitely not ...

Lowering the Price of a Transition

Why do so many transitions have annoyingly high price tags? Why can’t we just transition with ease whenever we want? Imagine the opposite for a moment. Suppose that major transitions could always be made with grace and ease, and none required a price to be paid. Suppose you could make big changes whenever you wanted. Switch jobs. Switch cities. Switch relationships. Switch anything at the push of a button. If transitions could be undertaken at little or no cost, it stands to reason that pe...
