Cameron Aitken is a staunch queer activist, ever since 2010, when he founded the first high school GSA in Sault Ste Marie, ON. He is an alumnus member of MSAC 2012 and received the Principals leadership award, upon graduating from high school. Cameron completed his BaH in Communications and Sociology with distinction, from Carleton University in 2016. He was lucky enough to receive funding to study abroad and then completed a Master of Arts in Gender Studies at CEU in Budapest, Hungary. His research focused on MSM cruising in the Ottawa Valley and his research interests include Queer theory and Queer Canadian history.
After returning to Canada, Cameron was job searching for 8 months and primarily looking for work in the NGO sector. Eventually, Cameron re-joined the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity as their Office Manager, and has been in this posting for almost a year. He is also the vice president of the board for the the Lambda Canada Scholarship Foundation, a member of the Ottawa Youth Engagement Committee, and a beginner harpist at the Anglican Church of St John the Evangelist.
Cameron is also a triplet, a musical theatre enthusiast, and you will most likely find them humming or belting out a tune.
