Vancouver Pride App with Map available on Android or IOS.

Six large scale art pieces by local Two-Spirit, Trans and Queer artists have been installed throughout the West End in advance of Pride Week, offering a chance for folks to enjoy art in outdoor spaces.
This year’s theme is “Travelling through Imagination” – since travel plans have been cancelled somewhat indefinitely, we are bringing far away locations and animals to Vancouver.

Morgan Asoyuf (nee. Green) was born March 24, 1984 in Prince Rupert BC, to parents Henry Green and Jean Gardiner. Morgan is Ts’msyen Eagle Clan from Ksyeen River. She has
apprenticed with artists such as Richard Adkins (Haida), Henry Green (Tsm’syen), and attended Vancouver Metal Art School with German Goldsmith Gerold Mueller. Morgan loves teaching, creating, and fishing on the Skeena River.

Morgan identifies as Pansexual / 2 Spirit (Genderqueer or gender non-conforming indigeneity) and feels a responsibility to push for more safe spaces and amplify the voices of 2S youth. Her work with Royal Portrait (Bill Reid
Gallery) has led her to deep realizations about how much of the active work within land defence and MMIWG2S is shouldered by women and 2S. More community support
is vital to ending discrimination and violence against our people.

Edward Fu-Chen Juan is a gay or queer Taiwanese Canadian. He immigrated to Canada as a young child from rural southern Taiwan. His parents are nature lovers and worked in the organic agriculture industry.

He has a bachelor of fine arts degree from California Institute of the Arts (Calarts). From 2013 to 2019 he created a paper and textile artisan business called Forest & Waves in which he collaborated with artisans around the globe. He was particularly drawn to the spirit of working with natural materials.

Paige Bowman is an illustrator living on the traditional, unceded territories of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Səlílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations, or so-called Vancouver. They identify as nonbinary and bisexual, and have embodied their
experiences of mental health, sex and gender identity in the metaphorization of mythical creatures and folklorish animals. They have studied illustration at both Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Sheridan College.

Kari Kristensen is a contemporary Canadian artist who lives and works in British Columbia. She seeks to re-imagine the Canadian Landscape tradition and its persistence in her
and our consciousness.

She is also gay, which she thinks has made her a better printmaker… how the mind works defies exact causation,but she thinks past stress around her sexuality androgynous gender expression led to her OCD. Having OCD has
enhanced the attention needed to execute the precision of her printmaking.
