I’m an award-winning journalist and the editorial director of Xtra, the world’s oldest LGBTQ2 media organization. My book Boys: What it Means to Become a Man is published by Patrick Crean Editions/HarperCollins Canada and Seal Press — it was named one of the Globe and Mail’s 100 Favourite Books of 2018.

For four years, my weekly column on politics, pop culture and feminism appeared in Chatelaine, where I was the editor-at-large. I’m also a regular contributor to CBC Radio and the Globe and Mail. I was the deputy editor of The Grid, an internationally recognized newsweekly and a senior editor at The Walrus. I’ve taught journalism at Ryerson University and University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs. My home is Toronto, where I live with my wife and son.
