"Time and time again, throughout my career in both Canada and the United States, I have been reminded that storytelling and journalism centered on the human experience changes lives. The opportunity to continue building on Pink Triangle Press' unmatched history as an organization that fights alongside the audiences it serves is one of the things that drew me to this job. Expanding voice and representation in media across multiple platforms is near and dear to my heart. I'm incredibly excited about where the team at Xtra has been and will go next,"says Mullins.
