day 21: caron

“I’m going to be wearing a faux MO ALL DAY, EVERY DAY for the 30 DAYS of Movember.”

I am lucky to not only call Caron my teammate, Movember soul mate, but also my friend.

Caron became involved with Movember last year where every day in Movember, she wore a different moustache-inspired outfit and photographed/blogged her efforts. […]

day 20: alanna

“I’m organizing Rockin’ Stache”

In my Movember journey, the women I have met have had varying knowledge of what Movember is all about.

Meet Alanna: a breath of fresh air! Alanna is a server at a restaurant/bar in downtown Toronto. She is one of the organizers for Rockin’ Stache happening next Thursday, Movember 29th.  Working with a […]

day 19: MoSista Calendar

“amazing girls coming together for an amazing cause”

There is something really special being part of a team. This weekend my team MoSistasTO launched our calendar with 10o% of the proceeds going to Movember. The launch party was at The Drake. Check out the amazing photos by the talented Kevin Luc, and buy the calendar here.

day 18: tracy

“have you heard of Julyna?”

Tracy is smart and driven, and is currently pursuing her Master’s degree with a specific interest in gender and gaming. Her department currently has a Movember campaign, which is advertised throughout the building. As we chat about Movember, I ask her how she thinks women can participate in Movember, but the […]

day 17: dinah

“I quite like the look of a good moustache”

Dinah works at a library in Toronto. I talk to her near the end of her shift and continue the conversation after she ends. Dinah reminisces about the moustache trends of the past. She likes a man with a good moustache and thinks it looks good, but […]

day 16: ava-gay

“it’s not all about women”

Ava-gay works at a very up-market men’s clothing store. As the only woman working in the store, I was interested to chat with her in this male-dominated environment. I explained I am participating in Movember and she said “are you donating your hair?” At the end of my Master’s thesis on […]

day 15: procrastination

“it happens…”

I’ll do it later. Soon. When I have more time.

Words we all say. Life is busy. Life is always busy. There are only 24 hours in a day. It’s mid-month, and I found myself too busy, overwhelmed, and tired to properly photograph and chat to someone today about men’s health.

However, I think as it […]

day 14: chantel

“I can’t even talk with this. It’s so tickly…”

Chantel graduated from high school about 2 years ago, and looks back fondly as she strokes her (fake) Mo. She specifically remembers the Movember initiatives at her Brampton school. ALL of the male teachers grew moustaches. There were even a few female teachers who donned a fake […]

day 13: jauceline

“the money goes to prostate cancer”

Standing at a busy downtown intersection, Jauceline and her all-female team are handing out a free men’s shampoo. They give you a penny, you drop the penny in the big box, and then you get your sample. I asked, “What’s the point of the penny?” Apparently, because the shampoo has […]

day 12: pooja & edith

“I like to help people, of course”

With the smell of hot veg. samosas in the air, I meet Pooya (right) and Edith (left). They are selling samosas to celebrate Diwali and also raise money for a volunteer abroad program in Honduras. They are part of a pre-dentistry club and are hoping to raise funds for […]
