Pansy Ass Ceramics explores gay male identity and culture through the medium of porcelain and the act of ornamentation, the sculptures are predominantly slip-cast porcelain, combined with hand built elements. Kris and Andy describe ceramics as “an exciting medium to explore sexuality. The material itself is very sensual, you have to get it wet and touch it just the right spot to get it to react the way you want it to. It goes through a prolonged series of intense heating up and cooling down sessions to reach its final form. Historically it plays an important role in the camp aesthetic, decorative arts and domestic identity. For Delicious Embrace we have put together a collection of works that reflect how we play with these histories and penetrate them with gay male sexuality and desire. We try to take elements from kitsch and rococo ceramic style and apply them to explicit forms of gay male sexuality and culture.”

The University of Toronto Stem Cell Club is a student-run organization focused on improving the quality and quantity of membership on Canada’s stem cell donor database. Often for patients with certain blood diseases, like leukaemia and lymphoma, the only treatment option is to receive a bone marrow or stem cell transplant from a compatible, healthy donor. Unlike regular blood donation, however, stem cell/bone marrow recipients need to find specific donors in order to have a successful treatment outcome. The Stem Cell Club organizes and facilitates drives where we recruit potential donors to see if they are a “match” for patients in need. This is particularly important for non-caucasian patients, as they currently have a tougher time finding a donor (the registry is predominantly caucasian, and people are more likely to match with someone of the same ethnic background). To register with the Canadian Stem Cell Registry, you need to be in good general health, 35 years of age or younger, and have provincial health coverage. To learn more, visit here
