Kamila Rina is an autistic and multi-disabled Jewish immigrant non-binary/genderfluid bi & ace-spectrum poet, activist, an educator/peer counsellor on sexuality, disability, gender, and trauma, and a survivor of long-term violence.  They have 2 decades of experience in peer counselling survivors; their passion and focus are embodied sexuality for survivors & disabled folks, and queer / survivor / disabled life skills.  They speak 7 languages, at various fluency levels.  They enjoy hanging out with trees, making poems out of trauma, delight, and everything in between, talking about being present in one’s body, building accessible communities, and fomenting the (disabled / anti-colonialist / gender) revolution.
