My Life

Hello, is anybody out there!

Well, holy shit, long time no see, folks! Mx Nillin here, though most of you likely remember me as Kevlar. In the time since you last heard anything from me I’ve changed my name (all of it), gotten married (to EZ Bruiser!), started a polyamorous relationship with another partner, and I’ve been forging along a pretty exciting career path as a sex blogger, educator and erotica writer. Whodathunkit, eh!?

If you’re curious about what EZ Brusiser and I are looking like these days, here are a couple pics of us from the last few months.

Anyway, if you’re at all interested in following my current writing, you can find my new blog at www.mxnillin.com where I post about non-monogamy and polyamory, group sex, queer/feminist porn, kinks and fetishes, furries, as well as ethical exhibitionism and voyeurism, among other things. While I do write on a variety of topics, I strive to primarily generate queer and trans centric content that is pleasure focused, sex & body positive, kink/BDSM friendly, and anti-racist.

[NOTE: Mx Nillin is an 18+ sex blog, so, reader discretion advised.]

Outside of the blog you can frequently find me reviewing and tweeting about queer porn for the #SexEdPornReviews feature on feminist adult entertainment site “The Crash Pad Series” [this is an ADULT ONLY site]. Additionally, I’ve been doing some collaborative posts with other sex bloggers and next month I’ll be starting to give some public workshops and presentations on sexuality.

In terms of social media, I do have a pretty active Twitter account up for Mx Nillin. Please feel free to follow me there and, if you’re feeling comfortable, toss me a message or tweet!

[NOTE: the Twitter account is SUPER 18+, so again, reader discretion is advised.]

For those who remember my coming out posts from 2013 and 2014, if you’re interested in life/transition updates check out:

I hope that you are all doing well and taking care of yourselves.

Love,

Mx Nillin

Derby Frontier Makes Top Five Nominee Shortlist in Two Categories of 2014 Canadian Weblog Awards

Written by Kevin Dennison

In the powerful words of Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time: “Oh. My. Glob!” I am incredibly honored for Derby Frontier to have been chosen as one of the Top Five Nominees in the categories of “LGBTQ” and “Sports & Recreation” for the 2014 Canadian Weblog Awards. 530 Canadian blogs received nominations across 26 categories this year. With so much stellar content coming from all of those nominees, it is honestly a surreal feeling to have been selected for the shortlist of any category, let alone two of them!

While I am certainly thrilled to have been selected as a finalist in both categories, being shortlisted for LGBTQ blog of the year is something that I am particularly excited about. LGBTQI+ advocacy has been very near and dear to my heart for quite some time now. As a pansexual and trans* individual, who is passionate about contributing to the Trans* and LGBTQ Rights Movement across Saskatchewan in my everyday life, I feel extremely fortunate to have been recognized in that grouping.

I’d like to sincerely thank Ms. Dr. Joseph L. Simonis of the Windy City Rollers, Angie Reid (aka Easy Break Oven) of Calgary Roller Derby, Mack Schneider (aka The Smacktivist) of the Ohio Roller Girls, Andee Scallion (aka Miss Identified) of Hartford Area Roller Derby, celebrated triathlete Chris Mosier, and Mikayla Schultz of Gender Talk and TransSask Support Services, for contributing so much outstanding content to the blog during Trans* Awareness in Sports Week this year. I do not doubt one bit that your participation in this event played a great role in Derby Frontier getting recognized for its LGBTQ content!

I also want to say an ENORMOUS thank you to my wife Falon Dennison, aka EZ Bruiser, as she has always been there to cheer me on through my late nights wrestling with crippling self-doubt. She has been a tremendous source of encouragement and support through many of the biggest ups and downs I have ever faced as a blogger and she really helps me keep myself grounded. Additionally, this post wouldn’t be complete without mentioning my good friend and long time supporter of the blog, Hannah Wilkinson, aka Willkillsome. She has written a few pieces herself, helps with the social media side of things on occasion, and is just generally there for me a great deal not only in terms of the blog and derby stuff but in life as well.

Then, of course, there are the countless individuals from roller derby communities around the world who have agreed to interviews, as well as to the bout photographers who have provided photo usage permission for images included in the hundreds of blog posts here, and to all of you across the globe who continue reading and sharing content from Derby Frontier! Thank you all!

Finally, I would like to congratulate all of the other shortlisted blogs in this year’s competition. The work that all of you have put into your writing is incredibly inspiring and I wish each of you the best of luck during the final selection process.

Roster Announced for Destination: Derby’s 2015 Midwestern USA Trip

Destination: Derby officially announced the roster for the 2015 Midwestern USA journey on their Facebook page yesterday and I could not be more excited about having the opportunity to travel with such a great group of people. Some of them I already know quite well from over the past couple of years, others I will be meeting for the first time as we spend 20-ish days in close proximity travelling together, but there is still plenty of time to become acquainted with one another online as we all work hard at fundraising and attaining sponsorship for the trip.

Without further ado, here are the participants for 2015:

Addy 2 d’juster ‪#‎n10s – (Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada)
B’Elanna Torrid #656 – (St. Albert, Alberta, Canada)
Cherri Blaster #6 – (Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada)
D’s Nutz #00 – (Astoria, Oregon, USA)
EZ Bruiser #44 – (Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada)
Faye Tality #23 – (Fernie, British Columbia, Canada)
First Aid Kitsch #80 – (St. Albert, Alberta, Canada)

Coach: Coach Rotten (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada)
Referee
: Derrek “Pumba” Dezall (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)
Manager
: Theophany Tait (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)
Assistant
: Likittysplit (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)
Communications/Media Director: Kevin Dennison (Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada)

And, of course, let’s not forget Tuck’Er Out and Roxyzzle, our two canine companions/mascots!

I’d just like to take a moment here to thank Sharyl Raines, B’Elanna Torrid, as well as the other founding members, for organizing this tremendous event and for having EZ Bruiser and I along for the ride. As we will be married in just over a month from now, this adventure will in many ways serve as our unofficial honeymoon (we have other plans for the official honeymoon later)!

As I briefly touched upon in the post announcing the postponement of the 2014 trip, I plan to not only blog about my experiences but also record some of it. My ultimate goal is to bring along my camera (pending it still working) and making a short documentary on the journey from the perspective of Falon (EZ Bruiser) and I as we travel from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan through several states with Destination: Derby. It will be great to meet new people, share our thoughts and experiences and to discuss all sort of issues and topics pertaining to roller derby as it exist throughout the Midwestern region of America as well as back home. Don’t expect anything super fancy, it’s not going to be the next big indie film, but I’m definitely looking forward to giving it a go!

Anyway, stay tuned to the Destination: Derby Facebook page as we will be launching our new official site later in the month. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to send an email to destinationderbymail@gmail.com at any time and somebody will get back to you shortly.
