In June 2017, Wayves interviewed Riverside Campground owner Dennis Douglas.
Did you camp as a child? What was it like? Did you camp after you came out as gay? I camped all the time as a child. And used to camp at gay campgrounds in Ontario, and The Mermaid And The Cow Campground, right around the corner in Scotsburn. It's now closed.
"Ils sont" is a French-language picture book by New Brunswick singer-songwriter Michel Thériault that approaches the topic of homosexuality for a younger audience."

Kamp, New Waterford Boy, and The Decelebration of Canada 150: all three are must see!T hese three varied performances and performers are united in their wit and intelligence, transgressive queer spirit, their resistance to oppression and their challenges to conventional histories and identies. We are fortunatr to have them among our story-tellers.
"Heist is the brainchild and new creative platform for Richie Wilcox and Aaron Collier. The company is committed to creating, producing and presenting innovative, genre-bending and queerly playful performances in Halifax and beyond. Wilcox describes New Waterford Boy as "“This is a tribute to the Cape Breton man I never was and never will be.”
"I was dumbfounded when I learned in 2014 that Halifax Pride had licensed the Atlantic Jewish Council to promote LGBTQ tourism to Tel Aviv at the Community Fair, including Pinkwashing materials from Size Doesn’t Matter. Quite apart from the enormous strain that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict had placed on their sister organization, Toronto Pride, what did Halifax Pride imagine the AJC's presence would achieve?"
"The noisy disruptions, the lack of provision for proper discussion time, a series of conflicting, mutually exclusive resolutions, voting by show of hands rather than secret ballot and /or ranked ballot all contributed to the divisiveness and feelings of usurpation on the part of the Queer/Trans Community. Even Roberts Rules of Order seemed to support a feeling of white, privilege and Eurocentric forms of governance shutting out Black , indigenous voices and those of Queer/Trans People of Colour." - Hugo Dann
Dearly loved Queer/Trans Communities, family and friends! Let's all pause for a moment and take a deep breath and, before we do anything else, let's all acknowledge that, despite what we may have heard in the media, the current conflict in our community of communities is far from being the greatest crisis we have faced in 25 years. We survived The Great Shirtlessness Debate, we’ll survive this too. We may even discover that this crisis is the opportunity we need to make our communities and organizations more sustainable, inclusive and community service oriented than they’ve ever been before.
