Sexual suppression in This Magazine

My first national magazine article, about the suppression of resident intimacy in Canada’s nursing homes, is in an upcoming issue of This magazine. A feature essay, at that!

For the record, I am proud to say that I now share company with Margaret Atwood, Naomi Klein, and Michael Ondaatje. Or, it might be more accurate to say, to be a housefly in Brobdingnag.

Fun fact: the original name of the article was “Sexual Suppression in Canada’s Nursing Homes.” I have to admit, with that name, that I probably wouldn’t have read it. Thank goodness for editors!

    Hi Alex,

    Loved your piece and was hoping to interview you for my show, ‘The Third Wave’.

    It’s a weekly feminist radio on CHUO 89.1FM in Ottawa (CHUO.FM)

    Please drop me a line and let me know if you’re interested.
