As we congratulate the United States, who took another step closer to marriage equality this past week with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, we thought it was timely to introduce you to Brian.

Why? Brian is a role model and sets a positive image for young gay men. Though social media, Brian is able to increase the awareness of the rights and values of the LGBT community to all people worldwide on topics including safer-sex, anti-bullying, and human-rights.

Originally from the Okanagan Valley (in fact, we share a home town), and now based in Vancouver, Brian is a marketing manager for a software company and loves to travel all across North America to uncover new destinations, people, and experiences. He has a knack for finding the inside stories that resonate with the LGBT community and those that love seeing the latest trends. He shares all of this on his popular website Homoculture.ca

Brian is into healthy living. His passion for marathon running, working out at the gym, and eating right inspires others to achieve their personal best. Something I love and take inspiration from. #gogetit Brian!

Will you join us in celebrating equality and say hello to Brian?

The News:

[Vancouver, British Columbia] The start of baseball season with the Vancouver Canadians not only marks a great traditional Vancouver experience at the Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium, but also a tradition of annual giving-back to the Vancouver Canadians Baseball Foundation (VCBF) for Town Hall Brands, a Vancouver-based marketing agency.

Returning for its fifth consecutive year, Leeann Froese and Andrew von Rosen, co-owners of Town Hall Brands, are back again with the $5-run initiative (watch the video!) in which Town Hall donates $5 to the Foundation for every run scored by the Vancouver Canadians this season. To date, nearly $10, 000 have been raised and 50 children have received support to play baseball through the Vancouver Canadians Baseball Foundation and Town Hall Brands since, the beginning of the initiative in 2011.

“We’ve worked with Vancouver Canadians for more than a decade. As soon as the Foundation launched, we knew it would be important for us to be a part of it,” shares von Rosen.

As longtime baseball fans and supporters of the Foundation, von Rosen and Froese started the $5-run initiative to support the VCBF’s work in providing local children in need with the opportunity to play baseball through a summer mini league. For many children, this translates into an experience of discovery, teamwork and most importantly, lifetime friendships to enhance their daily lives.

“We’re parents, too. We want to lead other children in a healthy and active lifestyle, as much as we want for our child. Being able to put a child on a diamond with a smile on their face is an incredibly valuable experience for both the child and us. Not to mention, it helps to build community,” says Froese.

Whether you’re a sports fan or not, the Town Hall Team invites you to join in cheering on the C’s to score more runs and add even more to the $5-initiative to support our community.

I was happy to meet Jeremy last year when Sujinder and I visited Ampersand Distilling.

Ampersand Distilling Company is a new, family owned craft distillery located on a five acre organic farm in the Cowichan Valley.

Those who know me know I love #gttime, so when Sujinder and I were on Vancouver Island working we made a detour.

We were impressed by Jeremy and his talents with distilling, and the gin is delicious. Check it out at the Duncan Farmer’s market or schedule a visit the next time you are visiting Blue Grouse Estate Winery.
