what an amazing weekend of volunteering, events, friends, tears...
  1. 1.
    We had the largest trans march in the world
    In. The. World. And coming on the heels of Bill C-16, which proposes to amend Canadaโ€™s Human Rights Act and Criminal Code to guarantee legal and human rights on the basis of gender identity and expression
  2. 2.
    It was the first time a sitting Prime Minister marched in the Pride parade
    Justin Trudeau - sexy and awesome.
  3. 3.
    We broke the world record for most drag king/queens on one stage performing
    73 of them all performing in synch for 5 minutes. We got a plaque from Guinness World Records. It's all official like.

With recent world events I feel the need for some affirmations to remind me of what is important in life.
  1. โ€ข
    โค Love is love
    Man + woman,. Woman + woman. Man + man. All others that self-identify somewhere in between. No one gets to judge your love as wrong. There's no such thing.
  2. โ€ข
    ๐Ÿ’ƒ Gender is fluid
    There's so many more beautiful identities out there than just ๐Ÿšน or ๐Ÿšบ.
  3. โ€ข
    ๐Ÿ˜  Hate is learned
    Children in preschool all play together - they have no concept of racism or sexism until they are taught these ideas. Once learned it is hard to unlearn. Stop it before it begins.

I like to travel and keep hearing about the horrors of travel in the US (cough...TSA...cough). Today, I am traveling from Toronto to Las Vegas. Here's the joyous journey.
  1. โ€ข
    What I see of your security lineups in the news
  2. โ€ข
    There were 20 people (maybe) at the airline check-in
    And they weren't grumpy at all
  3. โ€ข
    Two lines moved quickly through security and the two dozen of us went through in under 10 minutes

    Oksana (my mom)
    Artist, writer, producer, single mom. I get my love of the arts from her. I used to hang out on studio sets when I was a kid and now I work in TV (but on the digital side. Full circle.
  2. โ€ข
    Lillian Bassman
    My inspiration for photography and life in general. She did her best work starting in her 70s and kept working. She experimented, broke the rules, and didn't let anyone tell her how to do photography.
  3. โ€ข
    Buffy Summers
    Girl power supreme. She kicked ass and went to school. Tragic love lives (of course). And in the end she shared her power with all girls.

You guys are funny and punny, you are!

  1. โ€ข
    My name is Olena
    Yeah, no one can say it right or spell it. But when I was in Ukraine it was the equivalent of "David". Very freaky. Super popular.
  2. โ€ข
    I'm 46
    And I'm ok with it. Had my mid-life crisis back when i was turning 40. I'm good with who I am, I'm not in a rush like most people see to be, and I've been through enough in my life that I prefer to surround myself with those who support and uplift and not waste my time with those who put down.
  3. โ€ข
    My husband is my best friend
    I met him at a kegger (yep) 20 years ago and we've been through good and bad, up and down and come out stronger and more at ease with each other than ever. He's a nerd and I call him my Bear.

We lived in Montreal and had no cable so we got English & French CBC and a handful of other stations including PBS from New York. These shows really influenced me.
  1. โ€ข
    Donny and Marie Show
    I have my grandfather to thank for all the musical variety in my life. He was a dancer and loved watching anything creative, even if he didn't really speak the language.
  2. โ€ข
    The Liberace Show
    Such fabulous costumes, charisma, and piano playing. I can see why I'm into theatre and burlesque today.
  3. โ€ข
    The Carol Burnett Show
    Oh that Gone With The Wind curtain costume!!!
