Welcome to TIMP!
My name is Lee Airton. I’ve been involved for many years in queer and transgender communities during the rise of current gender-neutral pronoun usage. I have been using singular they as my personal pronoun since 2011. My motivation for creating this blog about usage and support comes from experiences and stories of pronoun change, both my own and those of others. I hold a Ph.D. in Education from York University, and previous degrees in education and gender studies from McGill University.
In addition to running TIMP, I have a training, consulting and advocacy business on gender-friendly language and practices, both for individuals and businesses. I’m also a Lecturer at the University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. Learn more about my research or follow me on Twitter.
