When a transgender person needs to use the washroom at work, if no clear policies are in place, it can be uncomfortable for that person.

“A lot of people don’t really imagine the world from that perspective. So I think when people hear about the life experiences of LGBT people, it becomes more relevant,” said Joe Wickenhauser, executive director of Moose Jaw Pride.

“There are LGBT people in our community accessing our services and we can make sure that we’re supportive of that.”
