Pearly Pouponneau is constantly doing work in her community and producing content to uplift and highlight marginalized groups. Being a Queer woman of colour from a marginalized community herself, Pearly identifies gaps and assess needs on a community level. She brings together marginalized voices and invites them to shape a community that is truly inclusive and safe. One of Pearly’s accomplishments has been organically creating Colours of Mama—a safe and inclusive community for mamas of colour to be seen, heard, and celebrated—which Pearly founded after she noticed the lack of inclusivity in mothering spaces in Ottawa. Pearly has been recognized by multiple South Asian organizations for her efforts in dismantling misogyny, violence, and harm against WOC and 2SLGBTQ+ folks in the South Asian community. She was also recently recognized as a CBC Ottawa Trailblazer for her work with Colours of Mama and featured on numerous panels, most recently with CBC Ottawa and Creative Mornings Ottawa. As a multi-disciplinary creative, Pearly continues to uplift and support members of marginalized groups through storytelling and creative expression. As a creative director and producer, Pearly works with artists and activists to fulfill unique projects and think outside of the box.
