My monumental, 5000 word travel article about the great city of Seoul. The brilliant research team of Terri Easter, Jessica Tate, Lauren Andrews, and Jo Turner missed nothing as we explored every nook and cranny of the megalopolis. The story is print-only, featured in Issue #107 of Outpost magazine. You can check out a four page preview at Issuu (page 13), or contact me and I can arrange for you to get a copy.
My feature on Open Doors Metropolitan Community Church (ODMCC), one of South Korea’s leading LGBT-affirming churches. Read it at Canada’s premiere LGBT magazine, Xtra!
My big feature for New York-based Jewish magazine Tablet on Korean anti- and philo-semitism. Following an ADL report that ranked Korea as one of the most antisemitic nations in Asia, I set out to decide if Koreans really were antisemitic, or if there was something else going on. Looks like it was something else. Read it at Tablet.
The second time I’ve done a round up of the Korean punk scene, this time for Groove. A lot of effort went into this feature, which was nominated for Groove Music and Arts Story of the Year 2014. Read it at Groove.
My big feature for Xtra, Canada’s leading LGBT magazine, on gay life and attitudes in Korea. This one took a lot of time and effort, but was very worth it. Read it at Xtra.
My huge, massively researched feature for Groove, and my third cover story for them, on the history of Itaewon, Korea’s once gritty, now swanky, foreigner neighbourhood. A huge amount of work went into this story, and it was rewarded by being voted Cover Story of the Year 2014 by Groove’s readers. Read it at Groove.
My blow-out feature for Groove on anti-black racism in Korea. Six months of research, dozens of interviews across three continents, an uncountable amount of internet and book research, plenty of legwork, and it came down to this 6000 word feature. Cover story for February 2014, it was widely featured, discussed, reddited, argued over, and debated throughout the country. Winner of Groove Magazine’s Insight Story of the Year, 2014. Read it at Groove.
