The Reverend John Sovereign retired priest of the Diocese of New Westminster with Permission to Officiate was one of 100 volunteers who showed up in designated rainbow colours for a photo shoot to celebrated the new rainbow crosswalk in downtown Chilliwack in the middle of a summer downpour on Tuesday, July 9.
John has been a tireless supporter of SOGI causes everywhere but primarily in the Fraser Valley where the appearance of protesters at pro-SOGI events is not unheard of. There were a few at the photo shoot on July 9.
Rev. Sovereign's daughter Sarah is a brilliant photographer and she got the gig to take the photos including the one chosen as the official photo also included in this post.
