The fight to end hunger and homelessness in Wilmington
Lindsey Southerland, Contributing Writer • April 12, 2023
When someone doesn’t encounter or see hardship and strife on a daily basis, it’s easy to live in a bubble and not notice anything outside of it. People are hungry, hopeless, scared, homeless and desperate for help right next door. McFadden looks out at the parking lot, deep in thought with tears brimming in her eyes. “I used to think why me? Why’d I have to go through this? Why’d this have to happen to me?” she said. “Now it’s like, why not me?” So why not you?

As drag comes under attack across the country, local queens speak out
Nate Mauldin, Photography Editor • March 22, 2023
Drag is an art form that goes back centuries. Many historians claim it originated with Shakespeare, whose plays were performed entirely by men—and men dressed as women. By the 1970s, following the Stonewall Uprising, the art of drag had cemented itself in American culture. Drag foremothers like Divine and Crystal LaBeija would pave the way for what it is today. Though it has evolved much over time, drag in its many forms is an expression of our creativity and humanity that has persisted throughout history.

Leslie Smith, owner of the contracting business LS Smith, Inc., moved to Wilmington twenty years ago with a desire to try something new. He worked mainly on apartment complexes—a venture that lost creative satisfaction for Smith as time went on. In 2010, Smith first explored his interests in art and industrial architecture in a property at Rosemont Ave. nicknamed “MoCo,” short for “Modern Cottage.” This was his first experience building from shipping containers.
