Christopher Kane: ‘The fashion world needs to change’

The designer, 38, on his Catholic guilt, dark Scottish sense of humour and why we need to find more joy in lifeI stopped reading reviews years ago. They are so reductive. I do what I do for myself. I don’t care about anyone else. No one else put me through art college, no one else built my business. It was always just me and my sister Tammy – and that’s how we like it.Growing up, my aunties were like other mothers. My happiest memories are of us all together.

The Best Business Course I Ever Had

It was nothing you can take in business school. The most useful business course I have ever taken was not marketing, info tech, strategic management, or any of the courses you can get in business school. It was 1984 and I had just turned fifty years old when I went into the consulting business, having just finished a PhD in communications and rhetoric and left a university position. I had never taken a college business course, but a couple business executives who had observed me in differing sit...

Should We Regulate Business Coaching?

Can psychological therapy provide the competencies executive coaching actually requires? It’s not the first time that a psychiatrist has written about credentialing business coaching. Over the past twenty years there have been at least two articles in the Harvard Business Review by other psychiatrists pointing to the need for credentialing in psychology or psychiatry for the business coach. My hackles inevitably go up reading these articles. The current article, which appeared in Psyche Ideas, i...

I was five and visiting a psychiatric hospital. I had the time of my life!

I toddled round the ward giving sweets to old women and wondering why so many of them were clutching teddies. It taught me not to be scared of people with mental illnessI was two when my mum became a consultant psychiatrist at Lancaster Moor hospital. Opened in 1816 as Lancashire’s first “lunatic asylum”, it was a forbidding place, looming over the M6 like a gigantic haunted mansion. It had neo-gothic towers and echoey corridors and always felt deserted, even though there were still a thousand p...

Pope: God says sex and food are A-OK

Enjoying sex and food is not a sin and church leaders who tell you that are "overzealous," says Pope Francis. From the New York Post: "Pleasure arrives directly from God. It is neither Catholic nor Christian nor anything else; it is simply divine," he tells [author Carlo] Petrini in the book "TerraFutura: Conversations With Pope Francis on Integral Ecology," an English working title, out now in Italy. "The pleasure of eating and sexual pleasure come from God.""The pleasure of eating...

Trump administration sides with school’s right to fire gay teacher

Donald Trump‘s campaign has called him the “most pro-gay president in American history,” but he and his administration have clearly not received the memo. Trump’s Department of Justice this week sided with Catholic leaders who ordered a private Indiana school to fire a teacher for being in a same-sex marriage. The DOJ argued that the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Indianapolis is “entitled to employ in key roles only persons whose beliefs and conduct are consistent” with its “religious precepts....

Trans man gets ‘brilliant’ show of support from Catholic college after coming out

Exploring Beyond the Cage

I just read an interesting BBC article about why there are significantly more vegan women than men, which is mostly summarized by this statement at the top: When women hold two incompatible beliefs, they’re more likely to change their behaviour to reconcile them. Men, by comparison, tend to dig themselves in. The article cites a variety of studies that delve into gender differences and how these connect with dietary decisions. Reading it had an odd effect on me, making my vegan side feel g...

‘And Then We Danced’ Director Levan Akin on when a movie gets you death threats

Director Levan Akin on set with Levan Gelbakhiani “Can we sit outside? I need to smoke.” Levan Akin makes the request when we greet him outside a bookstore in Park City, Utah. The two of us find a cafe table nearby overlooking the street, where we watch a light powdering of snow begin to fall as the mid-week lull of the Sundance Film Festival begins. Normally we might object to Akin smoking, but in his case, it somehow makes sense. His Sundance entry, And Then We Danced, has incited protests ...

Conservative media selects its next targets: Billy Porter & ‘Sesame Street’

The uproar over Billy Porter’s upcoming appearance on Sesame Street hit a new high (or low, if you ask us) as notorious conservative publication The Federalist has launched an attack on the Pose star. Columnist Denise Shick has condemned Porter’s appearance, warning “watching a cross-dressing gay man interact with their favorite TV characters is sure to affect impressionable young minds.” Shick’s sole academic credentials appear to be serving on the board of a conversion therapy group called He...

Whatever happened to Mike Yenni, that Republican lawmaker busted for sexting a teen boy?

There seems to be an endless number of Republican politicians who’ve been caught behaving in ways that don’t reflect their self-proclaimed “family values.” One, in particular, who Queerty covered extensively in 2016 and 2017 is Mike Penni, the Louisiana lawmaker who was busted for sexting a teenage boy. We recently got to thinking: Whatever happened that guy anyway? So we decided to do some investigating… Just to recap: At the time the scandal broke, Yenni was the President of Jefferson Parish ...

How To Find The Perfect Baptism Gown For Baby

When it came time to baptize our 5th child and welcome him into the Church, it was important to find the perfect baptism gown for baby. The first brand I thought of was Feltman Brothers.

Podcast #570: St. Augustine’s Real-World Spirituality for Restless Hearts

Do you feel restless? Have you ever lied in bed at night looking up at the ceiling wondering “Is this all there is to life?” Or have you ever achieved a big goal in life only to feel let down? Over 1500 years ago, Catholic bishop, philosopher and theologian Augustine of Hippo had those same feelings of angst and wrote down some insights on how to deal with them and they’re just as relevant today as they were then.  My guest today has written a book about Augustine’s ancient insights on the an...

Why Calculating Easter’s Date Is So Complicated

Unlike Christmas, which falls on the same date every year, Easter is what’s called a “moveable feast." That means that Easter falls on a different date from year to year, moving throughout the calendar. In 2019, Easter falls on April 21 — a full three weeks later than Easter in 2018, which fell on April 1. The way that Easter moves throughout the calendar has a surprising factor: the moon.To understand way, we have to go back to the roots of Easter. The Bible doesn’t spell out the exact date th...
