I haven't really decided whether to keep this profile or to start a new. I think I'm kind of leaning towards starting from scratch so this profile is likely to disappear before too long. So this is a work in process and likely to change in the not to distant future but for now I'll leave you with what I wrote sometime in the not so distant past.
So I thought I would try my hand at updating my profile since I haven't for quite sometime...most of its going to be the same cause hey that's me but a bit has changed so here it goes :)
Although in my profile it says I am Gay it's hard to really be beholden to that. I'm attracted to who I'm attracted too, this is primarily correlated with grey matter and invariably leads to a greater leaning towards women. Some of this does reflect my physical attraction to people but at the same time is more deeply seated in shared politics, outlooks and intellectual preferences. For whatever reason that just tends to shift the focus towards women and as such I've only dated women. This isn't an ominous warning for any man who may try to message me but the reality as it is, is that if you are queer-phobic, poly-phobic, non sex work positive, super macho acting and like to objectify women then we will not get along. Of course this same standard applies to women as well!
I care deeply about social justice Issues. I am an avid advocate, artist, photographer and writer. I love creating and this is why I love being a photographer. Probably the largest joys in my life come from creating a story or taking a picture I like (even if no one else does) or standing up for who I am and the things I believe in. This often manifests itself in volunteering and in the past has revolved around Habitat for Humanity and the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. So far in my adventures in Toronto I've made it into the 519 but wish to expand my volunterringnessability. If anyone else has any great causes that might match my profile I am all ears :)
My goals and aspirations at the moment are to change the world in a meaningful way, to succeed as a photographer and writer (succeeding in this case is probably a lot different then society might misconstrue it as).
I think what makes me unique is my art, my writing, my tattoos and my outlook on the world. I make no excuses for who I am and it's not important for everyone in the world to like me. I am who I am and you either like me or you do not! That being said I find I am easy going and easy to get along with. I do not believe in excuses and I do not accept those who are not accepting of me because I am accepting of anyone because quite simply people are welcome to be who they are (as long as it does not impinge on others)...I have no say in it and I have no right to have a say in it.
Last but not least it behooves me to mention this although I am as surprised as all of you! I am 27 at the moment and not 13, I do not greatly enjoy drama, I mastered it when I was young and moved on. My realization that those younger and indeed older than myself seem to still revel in it is an endless surprise to me.
I was a galleried photographer at la petite mort gallery in Ottawa and I would love to find new gallery and arts collective opportunities here in Toronto. I would love to transform photography into a full time job if at all possible but want to try and avoid the bridezillas for now :)
Other than that I'm just living life and trying to find friends and have fun with the ones I already have!
Soooo...how about the last book I've read, the movie I've seen, the show I've watched and the band I've listened too?
Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet - Mitchell
The way way back
Food wise picking something I don't like or don't want to try is probably a bit easier to do!
