There aren’t many queer leaders that make it to elected office. There are even fewer racialized queer people who make it. Chris is someone I’ve looked up to since I first learned about him years ago. He was the upstart looking to win Trustee in downtown Toronto. I got involved and realized that he had the right politics, the right approach, and the right identities for a leader.
Chris has always been really supportive of my political endeavours and to me, this demonstrates the importance of working together and building together.
