My OUTtv co-host Rob Easton created, directed and spearheaded a pretty awesome video submission for the It Gets Better Project, with a little help from Rob Farrow of Way Out West infamy (thanks for shooting with us). You'll see some familiar cameos in it, including I'mSteveAdams, some Chor Leoni boys, Carlos, Hunter, Justin and the incomparable Michelle (who also played the bully).
Recognize this set location?
Hubba hubba! The West End sure is a sexy October strumpet in this video, no?
Thanks to all the volunteers who helped us make this real. Love you guys (and girl).

It's that time of year. If it's not one anniversary, it's another. Cheese and crackers. Have you seen Sad Magazine around town yet?
Yeah. That's the cover of the new issue... which happens to launch the same night as their first anniversary party this Saturday.
Why you should care:
- Although it's not as gay as Xtra, it's still pretty gay
- They celebrate diverse and local Vancouver artists
- The next issue has a feature on Douglas Coupland
- Did I mention that my contribution to said feature is titled "How Douglas Coupland Almost Got Me Fired"?
- Cheap tickets for the Saturday night include a free copy of the new issue
- It is an inclusive magazine and features everyone -- including queer artists and writers.
I'm definitely checking this out on Saturday. And so should you. More info on the event by click-clickity-clicking here.

Vancouver's Covenant House, a downtown charity organization that supports homeless youth on Vancouver streets, has put a call out for old jeans, sweaters, coats and shoes. If you have clothing that you know you aren't going to wear again this fall/winter season, now's the time to drop it off:
These aren't kids who are too lazy to work. Covenant House is a charity supported by a former organization I used to work for. I was fortunate enough to tour their Drake St facility one Christmas. A lot of these kids are running away from abusive homes. They need donations in order to stay warm and dry now that the weather is turning.
Thanks for your support, Vancouver.

Did you watch So You Think You Can Dance Canada this week? Oh girl. Vancouver's own Mackenzie Green made it through this week's dance off and he needs your votes to keep going strong in the competition. Did you see his hip-hop routine on Tuesday?
Yeah. Awesome footwork, great energy. You support Vancouver, Vancouver.
Here is their Viennese Waltz from the same night:
Is there some great talent coming out of our city or what?
