Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity

With the emergence of a slate of candidates for school trustee who would openly attack students’ abilities to express themselves as individuals, I am compelled to comment on this very important issue.

Schools should be inclusive and safe for students of all sexual orientations and gender identities (SOGI).


We all have the right to express and identify ourselves as we see fit, and I will advocate to support the LGBTQIA2S+ community in and out of our schools, and stand against homophobia, transphobia, biphobia and all other forms of bigotry. I will support and raise the platform of SOGI 123 and Policy and Regulation 4305, to keep the Greater Victoria School District at the forefront of inclusive learning.
