Vincent Mousseau is a community organizer, educator, student, and activist based in Tio’tia:ke (Montréal, QC), on the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) nation. This land has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including those of the Haudenosaunee confederacy and of Anishinabeg nations.
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 the creation of intergenerational and intersectional LGBTQ2+ 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’s self-care routine includes journaling, black coffee, spending time at the library, and aimlessly wandering through museums.
Vincent is a Black, queer, non-binary person who uses the pronouns they in English, and iel or il in French.
