Our professional insight stream is sexual health content written by certified healthcare professionals that address clinical aspects of sexual health. If you are a healthcare practitioner and would like to write for us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Our editorial stream includes first person narratives and perspective pieces that address subjects of sexual health that are non-clinical in nature. These pieces typically entail personal experiences with, or opinions on, the topic of sexual health in the context of the healthcare system. This content does not require any clinical expertise in the subject matter. Please get in contact with us if you are interested in submitting a piece and we will let you know more about our guidelines."

A group of concerned Little Burgundy residents are trying to reclaim a piece of land that was once home to a historic Black community centre that was demolished six years ago. A new executive was formed to realize the dream of creating a curated space to share the history of Afro-Canadians in Montreal. We are hoping to have this money within the next year in order to break ground for this much needed space.
