“As a physi­cian, I of­ten see ex­am­ples of in­sti­tu­tional racism in our health care sys­tem. I’ve come to re­al­ize that peo­ple aren’t aware of the level of dis­crim­i­na­tion that still ex­ists in Canada. The fact that we don’t col­lect racial data in our health records pre­vents us from hav­ing in­formed con­ver­sa­tions about the well­be­ing of marginal­ized com­mu­ni­ties.” — Mo­jola Omole (“In­sult, then In­jury,” p. 13) has ap­peared on the CBC’S Here and Now and is forth­com­ing in Quartz. “I used to think of sex­ual ed­u­ca­tion in a sim­plis­tic way: peo­ple who learn about en­thu­si­as­tic con­sent have clearer con­ver­sa­tions and, con­se­quently, ex­pe­ri­ence less sex­ual as­sault. Af­ter writ­ing this story, I’ve come to un­der­stand that the prob­lem is not whether women are heard but whether they are also re­spected, heeded, and val­ued.” — Sarah Bar­mak (“Sex­ual Evo­lu­tion,” p. 30) is a Toronto jour­nal­ist and au­thor. Her first book, Closer: Notes from the Or­gas­mic Fron­tier of Fe­male Sex­u­al­ity, was pub­lished in 2016. “Pop music is the most ubiq­ui­tous art form: it’s in our cars, in shop­ping malls, and in restau­rants. So when we an­a­lyze pop, we’re ex­am­in­ing not only the song or artist but also the broader au­di­ence, our main­stream cul­ture, and how we live col­lec­tively in so­ci­ety. This feels like a crit­i­cal dis­cus­sion to be hav­ing right now.” — Tariq Hus­sain’s (“Skip the Cho­rus,” p. 63) next solo al­bum, Tele­grams, will be re­leased this year.
