Arts & Culture

This week we interview a real housewife of New Jersey — not from the TV show, but the real deal. Monique Costa is a wife and mother of two boys and the author of “How Leonard Lost his Spots,” a children’s book about a transgender leopard. Hint: It makes a great Christmas present for that trans person in your life.

As the biggest city in Canada, Toronto has a wealth of culture and arts to offer, as well as a large and active LGBT community.
