I’m sure you are as glad as I am that this brutal winter is finally behind us and the air is starting to smell and feel like spring. It’s time to sort out the summer casual wear!

There has been lots of LGBT media around the world as of late, all to the negative. Russia is still fear mongering with people who just want to be respected, accepted and allowed to live their lives as themselves. A lesbian couple in France was saying goodbye on the train platform with a hug and a kiss. It was going to be a while before they would see each other again. Then an angry train official strides over to stop them from kissing - he says it “can’t be tolerated”. Intolerance isn’t just happening in Russia, it’s still happening in one of the most liberal countries in the world.

Thankfully, our 2015 spring issue is much more positive! We bring you up to date with the progress of Michael Sherman, a transgender man who appeared in our inaugural issue in the spring of 2012. He continues to progress through his transformation as he nears the final step.

On the cover we have Jeremy Fisher, a Canadian singer and songwriter who is up for his third Juno award nomination and is very entertaining. A Hamilton native, he reminisces about his first time at the awards — as a high school student dressed as a mime.

Have a great spring and when you take a coffee break from clearing all that snow, it’s a good time to relax with a copy of OUTVisions.

Be proud be happy and above all be safe this spring and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
