Hannah Crouse (She/They) is a recent graduate from Mount Allison University, where she completed her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Sociology with an honours thesis entitled “Transforming Spaces of Learning: The Implementation of a Gay-Straight Alliance in a Rural Maritime Community”. During her time at Mount Allison, much of their advocacy work stemmed from their queerness. While she was a member of the varsity volleyball team for four years, they were also the President of CATALYST, the Mount Allison support and advocacy group for queer students on campus. As well, she helped create and lead two new GSA’s in neighbouring middle schools. Hannah will be continuing her education this coming fall at Dalhousie University, where she will be pursuing her MA in Sociology. They are interested in understanding how neoliberalism influences the branding of queer spaces, the emotional labour seemingly bestowed upon queer people to educate non-queer people in informal settings and the future of gender-affirming care in Nova Scotia.
