Hi, I’m dp/darren patrick, Ph.D aka dr.dp. I am an agitator-organizer, writer-editor-poet-dj, unrepentant faggot, and interdependent scholar living in Tkaronto/Toronto.

I completed my PhD in Environmental Studies at York University in 2019. Recently, I have been a Lecturer at the University of Toronto’s Women and Gender Studies Institute. My research is rooted in long-term collaboration with Laboratorio Smaschieramenti, a transfeminist frociaqueer autonomous collective based in Bologna, Italy. I also sit (almost) daily with the no big deal collective founded by Rev. angel Kyodo williams and I’m a certified mindfulness instructor and co-facilitator with MNDFL.

I have not regularly updated this site over the last several years, so Queer Urban Ecologies (QUE) serves as something of an archive of my years as a doctoral student. During that time, QUE was a place for giving life to ideas, for adding pixels to the picture, for experimentation, and for thinking autonomously. It comprises a mixture of the personal, the political, and the professional. It speaks to how i’ve grown and where i’ve been stubborn. It drifts.

I will be launching a new website with a variety of offerings in 2022. Stay tuned, bunnies!

In the meantime, have fun on QUE! And if you want to read a little bit more about my academic work head here.
