UPDATED: Avery Edison Detained at Toronto's Pearson Airport
British comedian Avery Edison (@aedison) was detained by Immigration officials at Pearson Airport last night. Unfortunately, they don't seem to have any idea what to do with trans people. Begin horribleness. UPDATED: Added details from Avery's girlfriend. Horribleness continues.
