Pride Week in Moose Jaw

 

A special flag raising ceremony will be held in Moose Jaw to kick of a cultural celebration for gay and lesbian people.

 

There was a time, not that long ago, when many gay and lesbian people were hesitant to "come out". Well, times have changed. In fact, GLAM-J, the Gay and Lesbian Association of Moose Jaw, has been around for about 5 years.

 

Monday is a special day for them as for the first time ever, they'll raise the Pride Flag to celebrate Pride Week in our city according to Dale Hall.

 

"Its more like a cultural thing and we're just celebrating who we are. Its a celebration of who we are."

 

The flag raising is set for noon Monday with people gathering in front of the May Wilson Theatre to watch the flag being raised at city hall.
