I will be talking about the realities, the dangers and the complexities of silicone injections from the perspective of someone who has had them for ten years. Although I have covered this topic before in my play, The Silicone Diaries, this topic also merits a lengthy frank back-and-forth discussion outside of a conversation about art and artistic theory, particularly with youth in transition.
What is SOY?
Supporting Our Youth (SOY) is an exciting, dynamic community development program designed to improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and transgendered youth in Toronto through the active involvement of youth and adult communities. We work to create healthy arts, culture and recreational spaces for young people; to provide supportive housing and employment opportunities; and to increase youth access to adult mentoring and support.
