Eye Weekly tears Pride Toronto a new one over their baffling "worst of the 80s" headlining line-up. See, Pride Toronto, it's not just Xtra

And I'm certain you've seen these two handsome, naked gentlemen all over the city — in posters, flyers, and on the TTC. Yes, that's me on the right. It's an advert for my play, Balls, which opens Tuesday night at the Lower Ossington Theatre. It's an award-winning coming-of-age comedy about two best friends and testicular cancer. Fans of seeing me half-naked will be pleased to note that the show is also a fundraiser for my run in this year's Toronto Underwear Affair, in support of the fight against cancers below the waist. It toured the national Fringe circuit last year and was a big hit, particularly with Vancouver's gays.
