Dates of existence
The Saskatchewan Gay Coalition was formed in December, 1977 by a group of lesbians and gay men who came together to work for the liberation of homosexuals within society. Branches of the Coalition were located in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Moose Jaw. Gay communities that existed in Saskatchewan at the time decided to work together as a coalition to combat isolation and promote liberation.
The mandate of the Saskatchewan Gay Coalition was to oppose all forms of discrimination against gay men and lesbians; to oppose all forms of discrimination against all women; to foster the growth of the gay community on a province-wide basis; to articulate the gay lifestyle to the general public and to raise consciousness within the gay community.
The Coalition's monthly newsletter, Gay Saskatchewan, was distributed throughout the province.
The Saskatchewan Gay Coalition ceased to exist in the early 1980s.
