Kate Clark (SHE/Her)
Programs Team Lead (Whitehorse)
Kate is a multi-disciplinary artist, teacher, and improviser of settler descent who is drawn to projects and stories with a strong sense of place. Growing up, she loved horses and spent many hours riding her [grumpy] appaloosa mare along the dusty roads surrounding her rural Albertan hometown, on the traditional territories of the Nêhiyawak, Piikáni, Nakoda, Siksika, Ktunaxa, Atsina, Tsuu T’ina and Métis Nations. She has always felt most at home among rivers, mountains, and expansive spruce bogs. Over the years, she has lived and worked in all kinds of places (many of them small and remote) around Alberta, BC, NWT and now, at long last, the Yukon.
Kate has often felt removed and distanced from her Queer community while living in rural places, and she is excited by the possibilities that Queer Yukon presents to create spaces of belonging, safety and creativity for LGBTQ2SIA+ folks in the North, regardless of where their place may be. She is especially stoked to work alongside Queer youth as she believes they have the best jokes, ask the tough questions, and bring the right kind of energy to make the good stuff happen. @me, youth! I’m here for ya.
