A message from Consul General Brandon Lee:

Prime Minister Trudeau reaffirmed that no matter who we love or how we identify, all of us deserve to feel safe and secure, live free from discrimination and persecution, and express ourselves fully.  We must continue to fight against homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia, and to defend gender expression, gender identity and sexual orientation rights.  I am personally committed to fight hatred, honour love, and defend human rights for all.

It is in this spirit that I would like to invite you to join me to march together in the  San Francisco Pride parade on Sunday June 25th. 

The march will begin around 12:30pm, at the Embarcadero, and will end at the City Hall, at around 2:30.  Please join me, together, we can build a world where all of us are free to be who we are and love who we love.

ZK Gallery, in partnership with the Canadian Consulate in San Francisco, is hosting a reception to celebrate the opening of My Wild Nature: Aurora Borealis, an exhibition of new paintings by Marie Catherine Péloquin.

Péloquin's paintings are based on her curiosity about quantum physics as well as her pantheistic beliefs about the universe. One can find at the basis of Péloquin's paintings a multitude of particles that appear to burst and harmonize the space. Her spontaneous "explosions" give birth to energetic pathways that exceed the frames of her paintings in order to signify a world that is in perpetual change.

Exhibition runs June 30-July 9th.
