Bedbugs in Toronto
These maps show the number of requests for service and inquiries (RFSI) made to Toronto Public Health, according to Postal Service Area, regarding bed bugs from 2009 to 2012. Absent more specific information, they are a fair representation of the spread and density of bed bugs in Toronto. The inspiration for this project lies in Patrick Cain‘s report on the same topic.

Phalloplasty: 1980-2012 (w/ Francois Grenier)
There are many popular misconceptions about phalloplasty; for example, that it is largely unsuccessful from cosmetic and functional standpoints. Our review, however, shows that 95% of transsexual men are able to stand-to-void following phalloplasty with urethroplasty, and a remarkably high rate of satisfaction cosmetically and generally. Other results were unsurprising. Like that forearm flaps are used in 76% of all phalloplasties.

Resources for autistic trans folks

This handout has been provided at several conferences and consists of a list of resources for autistic folks who are also on the transgender spectrum. It is updated yearly, following the Philadelphia Transgender Wellness Conference (PTWC). The how-to video demonstrates how I made the fidget spinners that were handed out at the 2017 neuro/trans discussion group at PTWC. I’d like to give a big hand to Bike Pirates and Bike Sauce in Toronto, who provided the parts.
