Warren is a Two-Spirit gay man from Ontario. He is the youngest in his family and the only one of 9 children not to be sent to residential school. He talks about growing up with his mother and grandmother with the language, stories and culture of his Ojibwe tradition, of coming to Toronto and losing himself to the ‘fast ways of the city’ and eventually returning to traditional Two-Spirit ways to regain balance. Warren is now a Two-Spirit activist and advocate for a number of community, health and Indigenous organizations.
