kai mcneill (They/them)
Drop-in/Referrals Coordinator - Whitehorse
Kai (rhymes with they) was born in Halifax on Mi'kmaq Ancestral Territory and grew up in Tthebacha (Fort Smith, NWT), the traditional and current lands of the Akaitcho, Denendeh, Dëne Sųłı̨né Yatıé, and the NWT Metis Nation. They are grateful to be an uninvited visitor on the beautiful lands of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.
Kai has experience in post-secondary education, healthcare, and elections where they have always worked to support queer and trans communities and develop policies & programming that advance equity. They’re eager to support Two-Spirit, trans and queer people in the Yukon.
Kai is a nonbinary queer femme who loves to express themself through fashion, photography, and their current passion, miniature figures & dioramas. They are a cat person but delighted to meet all dogs who visit the Queer Yukon Drop In space. They look forward to connecting with humans too, so please drop by and say hi!
