Alex Andras is an educator, motivational speaker, musician and LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning) rights activist. A well-known, and well-respected student educator and activist within the Humber College community, Alex is currently making his way towards a PhD in Social Work, sharing his story and moving rooms of people as he goes.

Activism has been in Alex's blood since birth, being the son of a well-known activist in the Toronto community, John Andras, and the grandson of Kenneth B. Andras.


Raised for a good part of his life in the City of Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough, Alex shares the discrimination and difficulties he has faced as a transgender man growing up in a society that didn't acknowledge him, proving that he is stronger than he could have ever believed with a little help from his family.


An unconventional coming of age story, educational, emotional, and inspiring, sometimes we must draw strength from adversity.
