February, 2014 – Mark's been named Qmunity Volunteer of the Month!
I am proud and very honoured to receive this accolade. I began volunteering at Qmunity nearly two years ago, facilitating BiFocus, Qmunity's bisexual social/support group. It's been a privilege to have met the many people who've come through the group. I've learned so much about myself, bisexuality and human sexuality in these two years. I'd like to thank everyone who has found the courage and taken the time to share their experiences and stories with us over the years. I'm looking forward to many more.
I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been invited to perform my one-man show, “Bi, Hung, Fit… and Married” at this year’s BECAUASE Conference!
The BECAUSE Conference is a the largest conference on bisexuality in the world. Put on by the Bisexual Organizing Project, it is dedicated to building an empowered bisexual, pansexual, fluid, queer, and unlabeled (bi*) community.
I’ll be giving two performances on Sunday, 8 June, as well as facilitating a workshop. Please check back this page for times, or go to the BECAUSE Conference website. I’ll also be giving a talk, and Q&As after the shows.
February 2013 – Coming out to My Wife – Salon.com
After 15 years of marriage, I drove my wife up to a local mountain, parked on the side of the road, and came clean: “Our marriage is over,” I told her. “At the very least it’s over in the way it used to be – which is a good thing, because I’m not very happy, and I don’t think you are either.”
February, 2013 – Museum of Vancouver: Sex Talk in the City
My then-partner Lianna and I were part of this 6 month exhibit about sex and sexuality – past and present – in Vancouver. We had an mini-installation in one of the museum's infamous "drawers". An entire wall had been set up with drawers along the wall, much like you'd find in a bedroom to store clothing. There was something sneaky and reminiscent of going through your parents' drawers as a kid, and finding sexual items.
27 July, 2013 – "Bi, Hung, Fit... and Married" is The Globe and Mail's Theatrical Pick of the Week! The performance was part of Vancouver's Queer Arts Festival.
