Join the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery and Moose Jaw Pride as we commemorate Moose Jaw’s history of gender and sexual diversity in a new museum permanent display. The Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery is proud to make history as one of the first museums in Saskatchewan to include a rainbow flag and LGBTQ material in an exhibit.

Presentations will be made by guest speakers including Rodney Cirrol Clark & Joe Wickenhauser.

Rodney Cirrol Clark came of age in Moose Jaw in the 1970’s and came out as gay during his High School years at Peacock Collegiate. After graduating, Rodney participated in Moose Jaw’s first ever public demonstration for gay rights in 1978.

Joe Wickenhauser is the guest researcher for the Hidden Histories display at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery. In 2012, Joe completed his master’s thesis on the history of LGBTQ activism in Moose Jaw and went on to found Moose Jaw Pride the following year.
