Pride Series Day 14 we talk to Nikk Selik from Chicago, IL. Nikk Selik (he/him) is a 31 year old trans man from Chicago. He began his transition in 2009 while studying video editing at Columbia College Chicago. 

Nikk began his work as a trans activist in 2010 by becoming a public speaker on transgender identity. Since then, he has been facilitating workshops across the country in high schools, colleges, conferences, and businesses across the country.

In 2016, Nikk co-founded the organization, T-MAC: Transmasculine Alliance Chicago, which is now the largest organization for and by transmasculine people in Chicago. 

Nikk has also been working with trans youth and their parents, both through his volunteer work with the Trans Mentor Program at Lurie Children’s Hospital and leading workshops on his own along with his family.

In 2018, Nikk was selected for the “30 Under 30 Award” by Chicago’s largest LGBTQ publication, the Windy City Times for his contributions to the community. 

Currently, Nikk is in the process of using his skills to start a YouTube channel under the name “Trans Papa Bear”. He hopes to utilize this platform to provide information and insight to others from the perspective of a “trans elder”.
