Project Coordinator

Jyssika is the Project Coordinator and a co-founder of speqtrum.

From Jyssika:

I like rail trail walks, swimming, board games, MMA, and I use they/them/she/her pronouns. I'm responsible for planning our workshops, supporting our coplanners and developing the coplanner program, as well as administration stuff and keeping us responsible and accountable to our funders and supporters, and most importantly, our community.

If you want to know more about how speqtrum started, or just want to talk about what you'd like to see from speqtrum or the LGBTQ2SIA+ community in Hamilton, let's talk! Connect with me at jyssika@speqtrum.ca to find a time to meet up. 


YOU! are the reason why speqtrum exists. speqtrum was created out of a desire to meet you, connect you with your peers, develop your skills, and give you space to engage with your community. 

speqtrum is designed so that we can follow your lead for what you want to see in Hamilton. We will be creating space for you to develop our mission statement and future plans, as well as including you in creating and facilitating our meetups through our coplanner program- subscribe to our email list for announcements about these opportunities!


Jiya is the Facilitation Coordinator and a co-founder of speqtrum.

From Jiya:

I am a South Asian femme, and I use she/her pronouns. I love being outdoors and exploring nature, but I'm also the type to frequent cozy cafés and just settle down with a good book. You'll see me a lot at speqtrum events, and if you ever have any questions or worries, I'm super friendly, love meeting new people, and always here to listen!

If you want to chat with me about what speqtrum is, how you can get involved, or anything else, send a message at our Contact below!
