Member profile: Meet Myriam!

This is Myriam’s first year in a choir since high school and she is very excited to be singing with Out in Harmony! Myriam teaches grade 4/5 at Hastings Elementary Community School. She is also a member of PEN (Pride Education Network), which advocates for an inclusive, respectful environment for all students, staff and families, regardless of their actual or perceived sexual orientation and/or gender identity, within all B.C. educational institutions, through the development of concrete supports, policies, resources and actions. She also travels around the province and gives workshops for teachers on anti-transphobia/homophobia education.

During her spare time she likes being outside, gardening or walking her friend Tuk. She also enjoys discovering new vegetarian dishes, reading a good book and knitting. Myriam plays the piano and music has always played a big role in her life. She is thrilled to have found a choir as wonderful as Out in Harmony!

Out in Harmony would like to wish everyone a happy Pride season as our annual summer celebrations begin. One of our members was in Seattle this weekend, and caught the rainbow flag flying from the Space Needle:
