Yesterday in Canada a man named Christopher Hyndman died

I don’t know if my American followers know but on daytime TV in Canada we have a show hosted by a gay male couple called Steven and Chris which I always considered quietly groundbreaking because it’s premise was never made a big deal it was never about their sexuality they are just two people in love and they had cooking segments and discussed current topics and interviewed guests and made comments about being gay which were both light hearted and serious and it was so damn beautiful in its normalcy because as gay people its still rare in the media that we are treated as just people

Christopher Hyndman of Steven and Chris passed away yesterday and the world is lesser for it
