TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF
Hello! My name is Nicole, I am a proud member of the LGBTQ2S+ community here on the unceded traditional lands of the Tk'emlups te Secwepemc peoples. I am an intersectional feminist, a social justice advocate and an ally to and for many other equity-seeking groups. I also love throwing fabulous theme parties and dancing the night away with friends.
WHAT CONTRIBUTIONS HAVE YOU MADE TO THE LGBTQ2S+ COMMUNITY?
Last year I was honoured to hold the title of Vice President of the Kamloops Pride board, I volunteered many hours, hosted many events, and sang in the Pride Choir.
WHY DO YOU WANT TO JOIN THE BOARD?
I feel that I am my best self when I am in service to others, I have privilege being me and want to make sure that I use it to uplift folks that are otherwise marginalized and continue to hold space for them. Being on the board last year was the best thing I have ever done and hope that I get to do it again. Meeting folks face to face and hearing their stories filled my heart in ways that I never knew possible. I want to give back to this community and fight for their needs and wants if and when the time comes.
