When Mabe Kyle was in their teens, they didn’t think that 2SLGBTQ+ people existed in rural Ontario, but years later, the youth group that Kyle co-founded has released a zine showing that queer people can be found in all corners of the province. “I think it’s important because it’s an identity that’s often erased,” said Kyle, who helped start Rural Ontario Community of Queer Youth (ROCQY) last year, the organization behind the zine. The publication, Queer Country Crossroads, features visual art such as paintings and photography, as well as poetry and prose. The rural contributors range in age from 12 years told to 29 years old.
