Back in August of 2014, Egale launched the #HearOurStory project in order to bring to light the complex issues and impassioned people of the Canadian LGBTQ community. Today, #HearOurStory concludes with the finale: Chelsea’s Story.
Chelsea is a gender-queer LGBTQ activist and artist who uses their creativity to evoke change in the small Newfoundland town of Corner Brook. But it wasn’t always this way. Shot on location in Newfoundland, Chelsea tells Egale about their struggle with identity and how it has shaped them into the leader they are today.
