Susan E. Kent is a wife, mother, grandmother, and an active community volunteer in the Greater Vancouver area. Since her grandson came out as a AFAB (Assigned Female At Birth) transgender, she has become more active and vocal standing up for the rights of the LGBTQ2 community as a Straight Ally. Since her grandson came out, her family has become immersed in a world they had known only though news reports and social media postings before. With Susan’s background as a community volunteer, activist and longtime business woman, she has become a vocal advocate working with the connections to build a better society for her grandson and others in the LGBTQ2 community that values equity for all people.
Susan firmly believes “No one should ever have to justify their existence.” and sees sharing her journey as a way for others to find strength for other in the LGBTQ2 community and for their friends and family members as well.
