Ryan is a non-binary author, visual artist, drag performer, and queer historian based in Treaty 7/ Calgary, Alberta (Mohkinstsis). Ryan’s work has been exhibited across Canada plus written work in various publications from Stride Gallery, and Luma Quarterly, to Raw Meat Collective. Ryan also runs an online queer archive, Mirrors & Windows, featuring a collection of found queer photographs from the early 50s to late 90s
Kyle is a non-binary artist and author who works with comic media and street art to connect seemingly disparate worlds. Born and raised in a special kind of nowhere – Bashaw, Alberta (pop. 830) – Kyle has experienced firsthand the intersection of queer and rural life. Their public works populate the Treaty 6 & 7 region in the town of Bashaw, the city of Calgary (Mohkinstsis) and as a participant in the international mural festival BUMP 2019 & 2020.
Set in 1973, Pass Me By: Electric Vice, the second part of a five-part series, is a queer love story that surfaces from Ed’s memories of touring across western Canada with a glam rock band called Electric Vice. Delving into a world of thick mascara, weathered leather, platform heels and gaudy neon, Electric Vice follows Ed as a bluecollar young man who’s drawn to Electric Vice’s charismatic and androgynous lead vocalist, Lou.
