We cannot regress and move back to old sex education curriculum in #ontario. We must teach youth about consent, gender, online safety, identity, lgbtq, etc. Just because people give birth and have kids does not mean that they are the experts in all matters pertaining to development, sexuality, consent and more, or else, for example, we wouldn’t have some lgbtq kids being thrown out of their homes by their parents when they come out. If parents are such great teachers why do some of them throw their children out of their homes? Being straight or religious does not make you an authority, nor does repression, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or religious ideology. No turning back the clock! Rolling back the curriculum will only lead to more depression, ignorance, and isolation for youth who need to learn about consent, sex, gender identity and being queer. #sexeducation #youth #youthdeservebetter #helpouryouth #toronto #lgbtq #consent #girls #boys #teens #sexuality #health #learning #equity #education #canada

Set bat. I heard screaming from the make up room and saw a bat flying around. @alexrotundo named him Edward. :) #set #bat

Okay this guy, @_adammacdonald is a very good director. It helps that he is an awesome person, just sayin...and he seems to know where to look in the camera for a selfie. I still suck at it. 🤗🎬🎥#director #acting #actorsdirector #solid #compassionate #talented #tv

I love this make up crew. Like family. Brilliant talented women. Xo #tvshow #filming #crew #makeup #love #ilovemyjob (well I love THIS job) and this crew.

Driving back into the Hammer. To the set. Next time I’ll get the mountain or James street or Locke! #drive #filming #tv #hamilton #the-hammer

I passed this today and hadn’t seen it before, a large building on Jarvis street. Colour meeting the clouds. #sky #toronto #building #art #colour #clouds #today

Apparently it’s international non-binary day! So in the spirit of gender fluidity and expression- I never shied away from breaking away from the narrow confines of cultural expectations and sometimes it worked out for me in my career as well, though admittedly, not often! So to the future and to the next generation that really has it going on! I love that young people know the language of diversity and are embracing it. Happy international non-binary day! #internationalnonbinaryday #nonbinary #gender #queer #change #youth #generation #time #embrace #awesome #film #tv #story #life #androgynous #androgynousswag #androgynouslesbian #nonbinarygender

Lol. This is the mad scientist make up artist on the show I’m shooting now. She is a magician of sorts. Seen here trying to take away my eye sacks. #tv #show #makeup #crew #secret #canada
