Danielle d'Entremont

Danielle d’Entremont is a dedicated community advocate, writer, artist, and policy maker. They were born and raised in Halifax, Mi'kma'ki, and now live in Whitehorse, Yukon on the territories of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.


For six years Danielle worked as a national and regional reporter for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in Halifax, Toronto, Yellowknife, and Whitehorse. Their journalism brought national attention to critical issues impacting 2SLGBTQIA+ communities across the country.


Danielle is now the Yukon government’s first-ever dedicated 2SLGBTQIA+ Inclusion Coordinator. Their work has been instrumental in driving the territorial government to meet commitments in its 2SLGBTQIA+ Action Plan. 


In the Fall of 2023, during nationwide anti-SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identification) policy protests, Danielle helped strengthen the Yukon's SOGI policy to better protect the rights of queer and trans youth. In March 2024, they championed the work of community advocates to establish Two-Spirit Day recognition in the territory – making the Yukon the second provincial or territorial government to do so.


Danielle is also an active member of the Yukon’s creative community. Their work as an artist and performer has been showcased by Nakai Theatre’s Pivot Festival and Gwaandak Theatre’s performing artist residency. This summer Danielle is launching a national letter writing project in support of queer, trans, and Two-Spirit youth in rural and remote areas through the Jenni House artist’s residency.


Danielle finds medicine in community, relationship building, connecting with the land, and sharing stories and laughter with loved ones.
