Quilts, Complacency & Crime
This year I was very proud to contribute to Sarah Liss's wonderful cover story on AIDS in the current issue of The Grid. The story is told from the perspective of two different generations of activists as represented by the amazing Christian Hui and Tim McCaskell. One shocking stat: One in 120 adult Torontonians are living with HIV. I wrote a companion piece on the increasing number of criminal prosecutions brought against HIV-positive people in Canada, and a timeline of AIDS advocacy in Toronto. Thanks to deputy editor Rachel Giese for the assignment.
