Kiran Rai, also known by her creator name KayRay, is an actor and creative director based out of Toronto. Throughout the past decade, Kiran has used her platform to primarily focus on addressing taboos within the South Asian community through the short films, documentaries and digital series. From bridging the gap between children of immigrants and their parents to bringing light on dating violence to combating the stigma of mental health and sexual harassment - she has been able to create meaningful dialogue through her work. Regardless of the approach, she constantly challenges people on their perception of women of colour in the industry. Through her satirical yet didactic content, Kiran's work continuously inspires critical conversation. She is now the co-founder of The Kollective, a BIPOC focused creative agency that aims to create opportunities for artists while supporting smaller businesses with branding strategies. Her work has been featured in the likes of The Toronto Star, NBC News, CBC, BBC and Cosmo India with her talk show Cha Da Cup With KayRay now airing on Brit Asia TV.
