Imitation is the highest form of flattery

The Star has picked up on the story of the Russian lesbian couple hoping to get hitched in Toronto later this summer, which you first read in this column here, and here.

Erstwhile Canadian Olympic figure skater Elvis Stojko insists that he doesn’t hate gay people. He says comments he made to ABC News about how figure skating has to become more masculine and stop focusing on “the feminine side of skating” have “nothing to do with sexual preference” (emphasis added).

The 519 community centre has decided to honour local philanthropist Salah Bachir with a lifetime achievement award for his work in Toronto’s gay community. Congrats!
