Meet Tony Correia
Tony Correia wrote "Queen's Logic" and "Foodsluts at Doll & Penny's Café" for Xtra in Vancouver. His essays and articles have appeared in The Globe & Mail, The San Francisco Courier, Lusitania, SubTerrain, Vancouver Review and Sad Magazine as well as the anthologies, Second Person Queer and I Like It Like That.
Set in the late 80s and early 90s, Foodsluts at Doll & Penny's Cafe follows Correia as he explores Vancouver’s counter-culture during the height of the AIDS crisis. With a cast of characters that includes drag queens, prostitutes, go-go boys and the religious right, Foodsluts revisits a period in Vancouver’s history that Correia claims has all but been erased and honours the memories of friends lost during the height of the AIDS crisis.
