Never comfortable with his body or given name, Krow knew since childhood he was meant to be a boy. Struggling deeply with his identity throughout his youth, he adopted the name Krow.

At 12, Krow began a career as a globetrotting fashion model. While living a glamorous lifestyle, he never felt like he fully belonged, despite the attention and praise lavished on him.

At 18, Krow embarked on the journey towards physically becoming a man. The first step: cutting off his ponytail and pausing his fashion model career.

In a series of honest interviews, we experience Krow’s journey towards his outside-facing self reflecting who he truly is.

As Krow grows in confidence in his new body, he returns to his career in the fashion industry, taking his first job as a male model on the runway at Paris Fashion Week.

Panel discussion June 3rd at 6pm PT with:
– Krow
– Kas
– Gina Hole Lazarowich, filmmaker
– Lucas Wilson, Care Team Coordinator at Trans Care BC
– Moderator: Natalie McKay

Image Description

Pflag Canada is a national charitable organization, founded by parents who wished to help themselves and their family members understand and accept their non-heterosexual children. The “coming-out” process can be a critical time for families. When the adjustment period is particularly long or painful, relationships can become permanently damaged, resulting in a lifetime of emotional scars. People cannot always rise above the challenge of accepting themselves or their family member, and the results can be devastating, even fatal. We support these families through today, and give them hope for a better tomorrow.

The Vancouver chapter of Pflag has a rich history that extends back as far as the early 1980s, one of the oldest chapters in Canada. Norma Houghton established the first ‘Parents and Friends of Gays’, (then known as PFOG), in the Vancouver area. Footage from the Vancouver Pride March in August 1981 shows PFOG as one of the contingent groups. Around 1989, parents Gertrude and Stan continued our chapter’s tradition under the name Pflag, a name that had become well established in the United States. The Vancouver chapter of Pflag became a part of the newly formed Pflag Canada network in 2004, and continues the tradition of supporting family members, friends and allies of the LGBTQ+ community.
