TGD2S Family Comic Jam & Barbecue at Cloudscape HQ

When: July 14th 12:00pm-3:00pm
Where: Cloudscape HQ, Memorial South Park Field House, 5955 Ross Street, Vancouver, BC

At the TGD2S Family Comic Jam & Barbecue, connect with other trans, gender diverse, and Two-Spirit families while participating in a fun-filled afternoon of comic art courtesy of Cloudscape Comics.  Children, youth and adults can socialize and roam freely among the multiple art stations. FREE BBQ and snacks provided, with vegan options available. Family means something different to everyone and we welcome ALL families who have a need/desire to connect with other TGD2S folks and resources!

Art stations will be facilitated by volunteer artists, including Sfe R. Monster, a Canadian queer artist who focuses on gender, queerness and genderqueerness in their work. Check out their work at http://www.sfemonster.com/. Other amazing artists in attendance include Oliver McTavish-Wisden, Emily Lampson, Kathleen Gros, and Christian Lett.

The field house has a capacity of 30 people, so we ask families to limit themselves to 5 participants each to include as many families as possible.

For more information, check out the TGD2S Family Comic Jam & Barbecue Facebook event, and you can learn about other events that day at the general TGD2S website.

New Paintings on the Cloudscape Etsy Store

It’s been a really exciting month, and now we’re in the last stretch of our 21 Journeys Fundraiser. We’re about 2k away from our goal, with the combined contributions from members and preorders from IndieGoGo, so if you haven’t had a chance to pledge to the cause, now’s the time!

If none of our IndieGoGo perks tickle your fancy, then perhaps one of these fabulous paintings will. They are $40 each, and that includes all shipping to Canada or the United States. The paintings were donated by dedicated Cloudscape members on wooden cradle panels generously provided by Opus Framing and Arts Supplies.

Feel free to click on the images to be brought to their respective shop page for purchase information.
