Tien was the first Asian Bi-gendered transman to publicly transition in Vancouver’s gay & lesbian community in 2002. His own gender struggles, family abuse and disownment, race and other ‘isms’ and surmounting debt, led to an attempted suicide in 2009. The phoenix rose, the Wizard was born. Tien now creates his life, his way, choosing JOY no matter what. The Wizard transforms Pain to Joy, wisdom and humourous brilliance.
