Non-Binary Mechanic Offers Welcoming Space for LGBT2Q+ Community

‘The Roaming Ratchet’ offers a safe space for those in the LGBT2Q+ community that might feel uncomfortable going to a traditional garage.

A mechanic from Merrickville, Ont., has launched a mobile garage service with a twist: Along with tune-ups and oil changes, Kai Dean’s business, The Roaming Ratchet, also promises a safe and welcoming space for the region’s LGBT community. 

“I’m a non-binary human, so that means I don’t identify as a man or a woman. Yes, we exist,” said Dean, 36, who has worked in the automotive trade for more than a decade and knows that some people are ill at ease in a traditional garage setting.
