Jordan Sterling

Freelance writer. Bartender. Gin aficionado.

I attended the University of Toronto for Health Sciences, but soon realized my passion lies in writing.
A freelance writer by day and a bartender by night (something needs to pay the bills), I enjoy writing about culture, the up-and-coming, and things that make people bump heads.

A Reality Check for Sexuality Shaming

It's unfair to assume that the ad is suggesting that a public listing of your bedpost roster is necessary for safe sexual health. That's not the case. All it seems to imply is that you should simply be real about sexuality in this modern age -- you're probably not Christopher Columbus landing upon virgin banks.

New Art Space in Toronto's Chinatown Hub of Collaboration

This is not your standard art gallery that features one artist at a time with an entire exhibit. Instead, ARTarium aggregates a wide variety of different artists, even showcasing drastically different mediums. The space is intriguing and overwhelming all at the same time.
