Acadian/French Canadian, raised by a Catholic mom and an agnostic gay dad in northern New Brunswick, Canada, she is now a recent convert to Islam and an activist for LGBTQ-affirming interpretation of Islam and other faiths. As Queer-spawned and an active ally of the LGBTQ community, she sees her first responsibility - in life, in faith and in humanity - to defend her biological, chosen and future family from sexism, racism, classism, ableism, heterosexism, cissexism and other types of discrimination.
