    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Morgane Oger does a lot of things in the fields of IT, business, and politics.

      For her latest, the transgender mom of two kids has joined Progress Vancouver, an electoral organization vying in the October 15, 2022 local election.

      Oger wants to become a city councillor.

      Her candidacy was welcomed Tuesday (August 9) by the party’s mayoral candidate Mark Marissen.

      Whatever she does, Oger always maintains her advocacy for inclusion of everyone in society, especially those who do not conform to traditional sexual orientations and gender identities.

      She has been fighting against discriminatory laws and practices for a long time, and she is far from done.

      On August 5, Oger released a guide for people who are fleeing persecution from countries around the world because they are lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders.

      LGBT individuals may be thinking of getting to safety to Canada, and this is where Oger’s guide may be useful.

      “According to Human Rights Watch, as of June 2022 at least 69 countries have national laws criminalizing same-sex relations between consenting adults,” Oger wrote.

      “In addition, at least nine countries have national laws criminalizing forms of gender expression that target transgender and gender nonconforming people.”

      Oger qualified that she is neither a lawyer nor an immigration consultant, and that she is not providing consultation or legal advice.

      In the guide, Oger identifies four “legal ways” to get into Canada and she explains how.
