IWOW: French hotel meets gay bar at new Victoria hair salon
CHEK

Brae Carnes never really planned to open her own hair salon, but says everything fell into place.

Role-Play Hair Salon opens for business this week in Victoria’s Quadra Village. Brae says proudly that it’s the first trans woman-owned salon in the city, a combination of a French Hotel and a back-alley gay bar.

You may remember Brae. In 2015 she protested against federal legislation that would force her to use men’s washrooms. She’s still an activist, who in her latest role as a business owner is doing what she loves.

We’ll meet Brae on this week’s edition of Inspiring Island Women, which can be viewed below:
