Vancouver-based writer, performance artist and activist Glen Callender is Canada’s best-known pro-foreskin activist. In 2010 he founded the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project — Canada’s feistiest pro-foreskin advocacy group — and under its auspices he has organized unprecedented pro-foreskin events, made multiple media appearances, and performed Foreskin Awareness Booth and The Revolution Will Not Be Circumcised across Canada and the USA. In 2012 Glen originated the “Foreskin Pride” movement that is proliferating at Pride celebrations across Canada and the USA. He is 40 years old. And bisexual.

Glen’s provocative foreskin advocacy has received international newspaper coverage in the UK Daily Mail, New York Post and Isreal’s Haaretz, as well as national coverage from the CBC, National Post, Globe and Mail, Toronto Sun, Toronto Star, Ottawa Citizen and Vancouver Sun.

On television, Glen has appeared on TMZ Live, Sun News Network’s The Arena, and CHCH’s Square Off. He has made dozens of radio appearances from coast to coast, including several guest spots on Sirius XM’s Jay Thomas Show, HuffPost Live, Toronto NewsTalk 1010’s Friendly Fire, Jim Richards Show and Beyond the Mic With Mike Bullard, CJAD Montreal’s Ric Peterson Show, Halifax News 95.7’s Maritime Morning, Calgary AM770’s Rob Breakenridge Show, and Vancouver’s CKNW News Radio. Overseas, Glen has been featured on NewsTalk Ireland’s Moncrieff.

In 2012, Glen modeled his foreskin for renowned botanist and male nude/landscape photographer Dr. Sherwin Carlquist’s acclaimed Natural Man photo series, selections from which were recently exhibited at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City.

In matters entirely unrelated to foreskin, Glen scripted critically-acclaimed dialogue for the Electronic Arts video game Need for Speed: Undercover (2008), and scripted radio chatter and cinematic dialogue for Need For Speed: The Run (2011).
