Vincent Mousseau is a social worker, educator, and community organizer based in Kjipuktuk, Mi’kma’ki (Halifax, NS), the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq. This territory is covered by the Peace and Friendship Treaties of 1725-1779. We are all treaty people.
A masters student at the School of Social Work at Université de Montréal, they also hold a Bachelor of Social Work degree from McGill University.
As both an activist and an educator, their areas of expertise include anti-oppressive framework, community outreach strategies for queer and trans people of colour, intersectional analysis, Black Lives Matter activism, and contemporary anti-assimilationist queer activism.
Their current areas of academic interest surround intersectional models of identity development for Black 2SLGBTQ+ people and their effect on health and social service provision, the creation of intergenerational and intersectional 2SLGBTQ+ spaces, as well as the barriers that African, Caribbean, and Black men who have sex with men face in the Canadian and Québécois blood donation system.
Vincent is a Black, queer, non-binary person who uses the pronouns they in English, and iel with masculine accords in French.
