One Among Us

A community for East-Asian and East-Asian Canadian transgender and gender diverse people.

Hi! We are One Among Us, proudly a registered not-for-profit organization, but more proudly a community of the great East Asian and East Asian-Canadian transgender and gender diverse family. We provide peer and community support for our fellows, aiming to build connection between travelers and those in our hometown.
We started as a memorial site for Chinese transgender people and allies who passed away. We believe that both those who are still living and those who had passed away are important members of our community, are the “Ones” Among Us.

Our Memorial

We started a website to mourn their transgender friends since 2021 November. It was launched before 2021’s Transgender Day of Remembrance. The website was named by Maura “One Among Us.” — That name represents that both those who are still living and those who had passed away are members of our trans and gender non-conforming community. As we write on the front page:

Perhaps the names written on the monuments made of stones do not convey what they really are, but we can remember them properly by building monuments made of zeros and ones with our hearts.

We collect information about those who have passed away within our transgender community and write entries for them lest we forget.

Visit and leave a small lollipop to our beloved friends. Contribute an entry to whom you commemorate via our GitHub repository.

Local Groups

On 2022 Dec 15, One Among Us was incorporated as a registered NPO in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We believe the incorporation isn’t just a change in name; the NPO status will certainly help with our work. We serve and gather people wherever we live, either in Toronto or somewhere.

Arts Among Us

On 2023 Mar 13, we lost our beloved member, ArtsEpiphany, to her mental health condition. We named our new online-arts-gallery project “Arts Among Us” in memory of her. Please keep up with our further updates.
