Gilbert Baker.

//artist, activist and designer of the rainbow Pride flag.

Baker was in attendance for the World Pride 2014 opening ceremonies at Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square this year and I had the chance to snap his portrait before he raised the flag up over the city to kick off Pride Week. Read more about Baker and the flag's symbolism over on Wikipedia.

In unrelated news, a HUGE thank you to everyone who visited me at the 53rd annual Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition this past weekend. It's always a wonderful time for art in the city and am so very inspired by all the people I met and shared with over the 3-day exhibit.
