Thank you to everyone who came out to the launch of our second issue! We were, once again, blown away by your support and positive vibes. We would also like to thank all of our FABULOUS readers, our lovely donors, our amazing untethered table volunteers, Melissa, Kim, Ryan, Michael and Trevor, and our awesome photographer for the evening, Justin Lauzon. Thank you also to Isa Lausas, who graces our pages with her stunning visual art.
We still have some copies left, so if you didn’t get a chance to buy one at the launch you can email us to get a copy for $10, or you can order online through the UofT Bookstore.
