Featured Vancouver Mom: Morgane Oger


I’m a trans mom of two elementary-school kids who are with me half time. We moved to a duplex in Kitsilano from an apartment in Yaletown two years ago and found a very nice, tolerant, community with green space and a wonderful feel. I volunteer at Vancouver School Board on the District Parents Advisory Board and participate in queer-rights advocacy while working downtown as a cloud systems engineer. Our family schedule is chronically strained so I’m always chasing after that extra half hour between all our activities trying to find time to cook a healthy dinner and spend family time at home.

Morgane is speaking at Leading Moms this year. Get your ticket here. 

Morgane’s favourite spots around Vancouver


Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company

Ask to let the kids make their own pizza in the back. It’s creative and a hit.
1876 W 1st Ave, Vancouver


It’s a fantastic book store for kids who think and their difficult parents.
3083 W Broadway, Vancouver

AU dance

Arts Umbrella

Their percussion based all-boys ballet course is wonderful and has traction with the kids.
1286 Cartwright St, Vancouver

Kits Pool

On sunny days when wind blows from the west. West end by the seawall is cozy.
2305 Cornwall St, Vancouver


Oyama Sausage

There’s nothing there the kids don’t devour. They absolutely love the pork “rillettes”.
1689 Johnston St #17, Vancouver

Devil May Wear

This is my favourite women’s clothing store, mostly made by the chronic knitter owner.
3957 Main St, Vancouver

Hillcrest Pool

The kids love the lazy river and the diving board. I love the universal change rooms.
