Teddy Syrette is a queer-indigenous advocate from Batchewana First Nation of the Ojibways. Their work in social justice began as a youth, by volunteering in their communities of Rankin Reserve and Sault Ste. Marie ON. Identifying as ‘gay’ at an early age, they became active with an LGBT youth group. Inspired by the arts at a young age, they began writing stories and became involved in theatre. At the age of 25, they graduated from the Social Service Work – Native Specialization program at Sault College. They recently moved to Toronto, where they use their method of storytelling, edutainment, and artivism, to progress their narrative to different audiences.
