Rupert Raj on Forging Community

Call Me Mother with Shon Faye

19-08-2022 • 22 mins

Shon speaks to Rupert Raj, a Canadian trans activist and psychotherapist who has dedicated his life to creating a world that’s better educated on – and safer for – trans people everywhere.


Rupert opens up on losing his parents at 16 years old, just as he was starting to grapple with understanding his identity, his fight to medically transition, the intersection of his gender experience and sexual identity, activism burnout, and using his career to forge community and support young trans, non-binary and queer people in Canada.
