Connie Laalo


Mad. Queer. Femme. Hedonist. Nurturer and friend, Connie Laalo will disarm you with her insight, candour, and powerful prose. A natural storyteller who values authenticity and radical vulnerability, she weaves tales from the threads of her memories to examine a life lived in the intersections of mental illness, unconditional love, and tragicomic resiliency. Her voice, raw and captivating, draws the reader close, as though whispering a secret directly to their ears. Her words are often described as tender, touching, and sincere. 

She lives somewhat reluctantly in “Vancouver” with her wife Alex and their dog Juno.
