Graham Robertson, MSc

Graham is a researcher, activist and social policy practitioner based in Toronto. He is passionate about translating activism and community-based research into meaningful policy outcomes for marginalized people. He applies an anti-racist, intersectional lens to all of his work.

Drawing from his lived experience as a young, queer man of colour, Graham works to support and amplify the voices of diverse young people, including Black, Indigenous and racialized youth, newcomers and 2SLGBTQI+ youth. Notably, Graham has led youth engagement in global 2SLGBTQI+ advocacy with the Get REAL Movement and Dignity Network Canada. He has also organized educational events for young people focused on political advocacy and reconciliation.

Graham has presented on 2SLGBTQI+ issues at national and international conferences, including the Canada Pride Human Rights Conference and the InterPride World Conference. He has also participated in panels to discuss issues impacting queer men and BIPOC men, with organizations such as Egale Canada and Leading in Colour.

In his work with the Government of Canada, Graham has developed strategies and delivered presentations on anti-racism, reconciliation and diversity and inclusion.

Graham holds a Master’s degree in Human Rights and Politics from the London School of Economics and Political Science. His graduate research focused on how governments can advance global 2SLGBTQI+ rights through foreign policy, diplomacy and international assistance.

In his spare time, Graham enjoys experimenting with new recipes, watching horror movies and listening to Taylor Swift.
