Jody is a writer and organizer born and raised in Tkaronto/Toronto to parents who immigrated from Hong Kong. Jody has laid their own roots in Toronto through connecting with other sick/disabled queer and trans youth of colour, building community with artists and writers and organizers, and frequently relying on dumplings as fuel for the revolution. They are deeply invested in how we can build a culture of care in our movements and in all our relationships with one another. As a writer, their work explores themes of family, queerness, and mental illness. They are grateful and humbled for the opportunity to build individual and collective power through taiko, as one of RAW’s newest apprentices.
