Jake Pyne

Jake Pyne recognized for leadership in the trans community

Jake Pyne has spent the past thirteen years as an advocate and a community-based researcher in Toronto’s transgender community.

Jun 29, 2016

Alongside a host of committed colleagues, Jake has worked on initiatives to improve transgender people’s access to emergency services, health care, and family law equality, and more recently, to support gender-independent children and transgender youth. We’re delighted that Jake has been named as a 2014 Trudeau Scholar, in recognition of his potential (and current status!) as a leader and public figure. His profile on the Trudeau Foundation goes into more detail.
