Canada’s Prime Minister endorses the Royal Assent!


The Royal Assent art has been a wonderful fundraising success during the month of June. All proceeds go to the LGBT programming efforts at The 519 Community Center in Toronto. The goal is to sell 100 art prints and we still have many Royal Assent art pieces to sell to make our goal. Please help our efforts by purchasing one if you can. They would make a wonderful statement of inclusiveness in an office or work place. They can also be donated to your favorite LGBT charity for a tax receipt. $519 for The519. You can order yours by contacting Akasha Art Gallery – Royal Assents are only on sale for 2 more weeks! And now for some GREAT NEWS!

Justin Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister agreed to autograph one of the Royal Assent art pieces to help raise much-needed funding at The 519. As you may know, he is a huge supporter of equality and the rights of the LGBT community.

The Royal Assent was shipped to the Parliament buildings in Ottawa two weeks ago; after going through a security check then the Royal Assent arrived in the Prime Minister’s office for him to sign- and he did!

The signed art print is now on auction at Please CLICK HERE to see the auction live!
