Our Neighbours: Stel

What it’s like to be a two-spirit/trans person in Fredericton?:

I’d say it’s a privilege to be in a city where I have easy access to a health clinic that specializes in patient-driven trans health care.

What could you do to make my day better?:

You can do your part to make Fredericton a safe place for my children to have a trans parent. For example, you can reply with “That’s awesome” when my child declares their Mama is trans.

We live in a richly diverse community, but we sometimes don’t see the unique and beautiful individuals and families who live in Fredericton South. Many members of our community are overlooked, some are invisible, and sometimes they are Othered. In the coming months, I want to introduce you to some of our neighbours. They are us. You’ll find our Profiles series on our website starting with this one profiling members of our LGBTQ community and continuing with distinct communities each season.
