News Release - Queen’s University staffer releases her memoir of coming out at Queen’s

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Queen’s University Smith School of business staff member Erin LeBlanc has released her memoir Stranger in the Mirror: The Search for Me. In the book, LeBlanc describes the highs and lows of her journey of self-discovery, putting the pieces of the puzzle that is her life together to form her authentic self. 

She also shares knowledge, tools, and practices as an emotional survival guide based on her experience for those living with gender dysphoria, their family and friends, supporters and allies, and the transgender and LGBTQ+ community. As an advocate, LeBlanc also shows the world how to take the stigma out of transitioning. 

It is my story of coming out, including my experiences as a Queen’s staff member and how I was supported not only by my immediate colleagues, but Queen’s in general. It is also a story of resilience and authenticity.”
