I’m Kylie Stewart, born and raised in Miramichi, New Brunswick. Currently living in my hometown. I started a News & Media platform called Miramichi Nightline in November 2016 which started as a webcast on local affairs and it evolved into something bigger than I expected.
After going solo in March 2017 I decided to rebrand to Maritime Nightline in August of 2017 and launch a website to write news articles instead of doing broadcasts. I covered breaking news, politics, weather, and more.
I was awarded the Canada 150 Leadership Award in November 2017 for my role in using my platform to shine a light on the bigotry the LGBT community was facing in my hometown after pride flags were painted around the square near city hall to show inclusivity and kept being defaced.
In February 2018, I went to Montreal and was in the middle of the gay village and was discriminated against and refused service at an establishment for being a transgender woman. I then decided that instead of writing on News & Media, I wanted to focus on myself and my community. Raising awareness in any way I can by sharing my stories and trying to open the minds of others with my transparency about my life and my experiences.
Here we are today. If you want to keep up with what I’m up to feel free to follow my social media accounts. I’m a human that supports people who support others no matter what race, age, religion. sexual orientation, gender. I fully support all minorities, because I myself know what it is like to feel lesser than for being transgender. I’m an open book and I firmly believe that everyone has a story and that everyone’s story counts!
