"Do I Pass?"
My poem, Do I Pass?, appears in Volume 4 of Outcast, a lgbtq+ literary magazine based in South Asia.

Outcast aims to bring about change by sharing stories, poetry, and art that start a conversation and providing a community for young people struggling with their sexuality so they will know they are never alone.
"Protesters, Press, Police"
So-called journalists believe they're empowered to invade other people's lives and private property for their clickbait and sixty seconds of infotainment spotlight. They work for companies with right-wing, racist, misogynist, anti-LGBTQ, anti-immigrant agendas and do not care whose lives they destroy to get their "stories."

I analyze changes in journalism since I walked away almost four decades ago and explain how reporters sticking microphones and cameras in your face invade your privacy in my latest on The Big Smoke.

Top 20
My essay, "Peaceful Protests", about the rules for protesting peacefully constantly shifting while police continue to violently attack protests against police brutality, was listed as one of the Top 20 most widely read and shared articles on The Big Smoke.
