Sam Asselin-Mailloux


Sam (they/them) fell in love with gender studies in 2014 and their passion has not receded since. Having come out as a trans nonbinary person in various feminist spaces in 2018 (academic, community and activist spaces), they have witnessed resistance and questions in certain environments (do we want a movement based on identity rather than experience?) Their journey, tainted by intervention, pedagogy, community project management and many existential crises, led them to Divergenres in the spring 2021, and to the Centre de solidarité lesbienne in the fall 2022. Bridging trans theories and feminist practices, they work in co-construction within feminist spaces to create safer spaces for lesboqueer communities and trans people (binary and nonbinary). In their free time, they love visiting local cafes, bookstores and museums, but they most of all love napping.
