Elizabeth Snyder

Elizabeth’s quiet determination and perseverance have been instrumental in creating spaces where the queer and trans communities in Lanark County see themselves reflected and respected—from healthcare services to their places of work, and everywhere in between. 

Elizabeth, as an out lesbian, is a key leader at Queer Connection Lanark, a volunteer-based organization dedicated to increasing the 2SLGBTQ+ communities’ visibility. Elizabeth’s calm, gentle, and welcoming presence makes it easy to connect with anyone on a meaningful level. Elizabeth uses this skill to have conversations with organizations and businesses to help them understand why fostering diverse, inclusive spaces is essential. Elizabeth also supports members of the community individually who may be struggling with quiet, confidential conversations.
