Elliot Page Announces Memoir
Elliot Page has announced his new memoir, “Pageboy,” which is set to be released in the Summer of 2023.
“Writing a book has come up a few times over the years, but it never felt right and quite frankly, it didn’t feel possible,” Page wrote on Instagram. “I could barely sit still, let alone focus long enough to complete such a task. At last, I can be with myself, in this body. So, I’ve written a book about my story.”
He started acting in Canada at age 10 and earned an Academy Award nomination by age 20.
“The act of writing, reading, and sharing the multitude of our experiences is an important step in standing up to those who wish to silence and harm us. Books have helped me, saved me even, so I hope this can help someone feel less alone, feel seen, no matter who they are or what path they are on,” said Page.
Becky Hill Discusses Life Since Coming Out in New Documentary

Singer Becky Hill has a new YouTube documentary titled “You/Me/Us” discussing life since coming out.
In April 2021, Hill came out as queer via Twitter saying, “I’ve definitely felt uncomfortable branding myself as straight, or anything else for that matter, but queer seems to be the most fitting identity for who I am.”
Since then, Hill goes by she/they pronouns.
“Coming out as queer was a big thing for me,” she reflected in the documentary, “because I never really felt like it was something that I could be a part of.”
The show features drag stars Dosa Cat, Freida Slaves, Rilease Slaves, Chio and Margo Marshall.
It is available to watch now on YouTube on the channel Becky Hill Official.
Jenifer Prince Creates Lesbian Retro Art

Artist Jenifer Prince is creating pinup-Esque illustrations of lesbian couples.
Prince describes her work as “lesbian and Sapphic storytelling in a vintage-inspired aesthetic, especially comics and pulp illustrations.”
Since it is rare to see old images of queer couples, Prince told The Huffington Post that her work is a quiet form of activism.
“In my work, I want to show that lesbians and bisexual women have always existed. Our love stories have always existed, even though they were erased from history. I believe illustrating with this vintage-inspired aesthetic helps to combat the erasure of our existence in history,” she said. “That’s why I like to draw positive and often wholesome stories.”
