I only knew of Jahanara Akhlaq through her photos; she looked luminous in them. A young Kathak dancer with great promise, she was murdered at the age of 24. The reasons for her death remain unclear.

I got the chance to write about a performance to honour Jahanara's memory by Bageshree Vaze, who started to learn Kathak after watching Jahanara perform.

I wrote about +Lenin M. Sivam's new film #Roobha for #CBC #Arts, and how he explored the taboo topic in his tender tale of a #Tamil #transgender romance.

I wrote a piece for Now magazine on David Chariandy's new book I've Been Meaning To Tell You, and how it helps me find a way to have difficult conversations with my children about identity politics. #canlit
