A Queer Look at Art and Faith
Explore the intersection of art, queerness, and spirituality as a part of Vancouver Pride with a special panel of three local artists from the LGBTQ community (check out their bios and view their work below). Come for a relaxed evening of art, music, and conversation as we celebrate the unique voices and perspectives that the LGBTQ community brings to worlds of art and faith. The program runs from 6-8pm on Tuesday, August 3 at St. Faith’s Anglican Church at 7284 Cypress St, Vancouver. In addition to the panel conversation with the artists, examples of their work will be available for viewing as well as time for one-on-one discussions. Refreshments will be served.
This event is free, and due to capacity considerations, please RSVP.
This event is sponsored by St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary and St. Faith’s.

sum soul named kevîn (he/him)
soul~kevîn began his journey planted in the fertile soil of Terra Nova along the middle arm of the river delta, birthed from wandering Celtic Irish seed. After nearly 30 years of being with the shíshálh (Sechelt) people, kevîn has returned to the home of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh Nations — also called here. As a seasoned imagineer, he is currently entering his flourishing years as a student of Theology along his life~journey as a gardener of soul~being. The photographic and poetic expressions in kevîn’s exhibit seek to reflect and communicate the Light and Life~Wisdom of The Supreme Gardener’s presence in the moment. kevîn brings to this queer exchange a 30 year career history as a commercial brand composer and conductor, father of four soul~birthlings, singer, songwriter and as a playful soul~child of the Love~Source~of~Life — from black and white to full spectrum.
