❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤🤎🤍 First of all, Happy Mother's Day! We celebrate you (and all caregivers) and all that you do! It's especially meaningful that today's piece of the art puzzle is this one, as it is a self-portrait of the X Artist, who is a big-hearted caregiver... in addition to caring for their own children, this X Artist was a foster parent to many children and youth as well... and of course is still a caregiver, including the rainbow of humxnity, Mother Earth, the two-leggeds, the four-leggeds, and all relations...

Alright, time may be a construct, but it sure seems to fly…

So, in this virtual space, continuing with our tour of “Alien Realities” by Edward K. Weatherly, next up No. 8/20: “Prophecy.”

"Prophecy" illuminates Edward’s perceptions of reality in relation to multimedia and spirituality.

Throughout the ages, the word God has a spectrum of connotations or meanings. Now, what does God mean for you? What’s your Prophecy? If you feel inspired to answer, please share in the comments, as we’d love to know your thoughts (&/or feelings), any time (&/or space). 🤩

Check out https://www.thexshop.xyz/collections/prophecy to make your "Prophecy" come true! 😍

Dear Superstars,

On behalf of The X Team, we hope all is well in your part of the world. We have been taking a much-needed break since the publication of Superstar X Magazine’s HOPE 2021 (https://bit.ly/2ZCC2mR) and are slowly getting back to this part of our world.

For our individual and collective wellness, we endeavour to practice self-care on a regular basis. This foundational practice has been especially on our minds and hearts in September, given it is National Su***de Prevention Month (which is becoming known as Life Promotion Month). Given the stigma attributed to Mental Health, it can be very challenging to talk about su***de, yet when these conversations are done with care, they can be very healing and life-saving.

We encourage open and honest conversations, with care, about Mental Health and su***de, to affirm for ourselves and others that “You are loved” and "You are not alone." We celebrate You and Who You Are. Thank You for Being Here. ❤

With much Love & Gratitude,
Nicole

Continuing merrily along our tour of “Alien Realities,” we arrive at No. 7 of 20: “Messages” by Edward K. Weatherly.

"Messages" reflects the bombardment of signals that Edward receives, doing his best to decode them within his reality of schizophrenia...

Whatever messages you might receive along your journey, we hope you always put your Mental Health 1st.

Dear Superstars,

To honour the start of Indigenous History Month and Pride Month, this is a photograph, by Michael Hill, revealing a rainbow over Keefer Lake, Timiskaming District, Ontario, Northeastern Turtle Island.

According to Wikipedia, Timiskaming is a word from the Algonquins' Temikami or Temikaming; tim meaning "deep" and kami meaning "open waters." Some alternate spellings include Temiskaming, Témiscaming, and Témiscamingue.

Upon review of the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) website (www.tanakiwin.com), it states that “Algonquin people have lived in the Ottawa Valley for at least 8,000 years before the Europeans arrived in North America.”

There is no question that Indigenous Peoples were here First.

However, there are many questions that settlers (myself included) must finally answer and act upon; there is long-overdue and urgent work that settlers must do to make amends with Indigenous Peoples: among many actions, honouring treaties and fulfilling all Calls to Action (94) outlined by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).

Established in 2008, the TRC was founded to review impacts of residential schools in Canada and help facilitate reconciliation among former students and their families, communities, governments, and all Canadians.

There were more than 130 residential schools and the last one only closed in 1996…

Among the horrific and heartbreaking Truth of the residential schools, the recent findings of 215 (!) children surreptitiously buried (and their lives inconceivably traumatized and stolen) at Kamloops Indian Residential School, I can only accept that all settlers must be jolted awake by now and dedicated to Act upon the Truth, to make amends…

My heart goes out to these children & all Indigenous Peoples. I am deeply saddened, horrified, disgusted, and ashamed to know that as a settler I am part of a system that has committed centuries-old genocide, which perpetuates in varying ways today…I am dedicated to being part of the solution, for collective healing to happen. I have much to listen, learn, unlearn, and act upon, an iterative process.

While the oppressive systems have a long and insidious legacy, I am hopeful that Indigenous Peoples and settlers will heal individually and together, co-creating the transformation that Humxnity desperately needs.

Primarily, my hope is energized by the generosity of spirit and wisdom that Indigenous Peoples so naturally uphold and the uprising of actions and greater awareness that I see of settlers.

I am hopeful that collectively we will continue to come together...

On behalf of The X Team, I wish you a Happy Indigenous Month and Happy Pride… may you see many beautiful rainbows ahead. 🧡❤️💜💚💛🖤🤎💙🤍

With much Love & Gratitude,
Nicole

Hi. I hope your day has goodness shining through... 🤩

Speaking of goodness, continuing along Superstar X's tour of "Alien Realities" by Edward, to mix it up a bit, this is a hop-skip-and-a-jump to No. 14 of 20 (we'll circle back to No. 7 eventually): “The Love Aliens Family” by Edward.

"The Love Aliens Family" represents our family of origin (5 humxns), and our unbreakable love for each other. 😍

Much love,
Nicole

❤️ For all of the X Shoppers out there, from now until Monday, May 17th, at 11:59pm EDT, a 10% promo will be automatically added to your shopping cart at The X Shop (www.thexshop.xyz)!

❤️ 10% from each purchase in The X Shop is gifted to initiatives, programs, and organizations for multidimxnsional wellness, especially to benefit those who are (or have been) excluded instead of celebrated for being “different.”

❤️ Thank you for being part of The X Family! It means the world to us!

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers… may today and every day be full of love for you. Thank you for being you and for doing what you do. ❤️

From Superstar X's first photoshoot for The X Shop, almost two years ago today, this is a photo of me (Nicole) and my mom (Beatrice). Of course, we’re both wearing designs by Edward, “The Love Aliens Family” and “Home” (L-R). So much has changed since then, which makes this memory even more special to me. ❤️

My mom has Alzheimer’s. We lived together from October 2016 to October 2020. She now lives in a long-term care facility in the heart of Toronto’s Gay Village. Although I don’t have words right now to express the winding journey to this place, I am deeply grateful that she is still surrounded by people who love her. I am deeply grateful that she is my mom. She still sparkles… she still shines her bright light. My mom is a Superstar. ❤️

Welcome to The X Shop!

Hello and welcome to The X Shop, a shoppable art gallery for the superstar in all of us and fuelled with 💜 by Superstar X!

Our purpose is to celebrate being human and destigmatize being different and our mission is to empower humanity and cultivate connection by co-creating for multidimensional wellness, art, film, music, fashion, and fun!

Founded in April 2017, Superstar X was co-created to help correct the injustices in the world and was predominantly inspired by my brother Edward’s diverse social challenges with schizophrenia, substance use disorder, homelessness, HIV, and identity (Edward identifies as gay and I identify as le***an), in addition to his successes and including his pop-graffiti artwork that is printed on multimedia products available for purchase within The X Shop.

In May 2019, The X Shop was launched to further Superstar X’s platform for co-creating Justice, which is central to Superstar X’s origins and its future. If you’d like to learn more about our story, please click here.
