I had the great honour to be asked to perform as one of the contestants in the May 11 Mx Judged pageant, an event that raise funds for the ASK Wellness Society and attempted to promote the values of hope, inclusion and compassion while breaking down gender stereotypes in the community.
I must say I was quite shocked/saddened/disappointed (take your pick) to read a story in the May 15 edition of KTW regarding the new Teenie Bikini Bistro opening on Tranquille Road in North Kamloops.
The story included a quote from eatery co-owner Leeanne McArthur: “I hope to God no man comes in and wants a job — and if they do, then we’re going to have a special night for that.”
If I wasn’t enjoying my retirement so much, I might be down there in my Speedo looking for work. And here I thought it was 2019!
