Gay Pride weekend and Canada Day weekend seem to fall together on a regular basis. On Canada Day in 2012 I was in the studio and decided to combine rainbows and manly figures. I knew there were some fellas that might be interesting to draw. Guides, explorers, translators...people who bridged boundaries and sought a way into the New. Their rainbows aren't necessarily bright; if you look at them too closesly you're likely to see some stains.
