Yanni Kin (1960 - ) writer
Sylvie was born in Saint-Quentin, Aisne, France, and emigrated to Québec with her parents at age 12. They settled in Montmagny, Chaudière – Appalaches.
Sylvie had the impression of living with a second person, Sylvain, in the same body. She was 14 years a Jehovah's Witness, and the church was scandalized by one whom they took to be a lesbian.
After transition Yanni has worked at various jobs, most recently as a dental lab technician. At age 42 he quit to concentrate solely on writing, and published his autobiography: Regarde-moi, maman! He has organized a collective of 55 authors from across Québec to raise funds for the homeless.
