Michele Fogal

Founder & Author

As a pansexual author, Michele has a passion for people and their stories. We can find unity in our diversity, because at the heart of every story is our shared common need for love, safety, and belonging. We need to let go of the olden days of tolerance and embrace the new era of recognizing our differences for the wealth that they truly bring. We are richly different. We are divinely whole, just as we are.

Queer Counsellor, RCC

Caroline is a queer therapist and parent to four kids. She has lived in several different countries and now calls North Vancouver home. Once upon a time she studied Russian language and literature, which fostered her love of story, language, and connection. More recently, her training as a counsellor, and work with the LGBTQ+ community in Vancouver, has strengthened her commitment to affirming diversity. Divine Diversity gives her a space in which to celebrate and explore the ways in which diversity, in all its many forms, can generate creativity, create connection, and provide healing.
