Our Small Town PRIDE

A Celebration of 2SLGBTQI+ Stories and History at the Wellington County Museum and Archives

Released For Publication - May 23, 2022  

Wellington County Museum and Archives (WCMA) has collaborated with Minto  Pride to create Our Small Town PRIDE: A Celebration of 2SLGBTQI+ Stories and History. 

Our Small Town PRIDE is on display in the Archives and includes photographs and stories from  the Minto Pride Committee highlighting dozens of Wellington County residents from the  2SLGBTQI+ community. 

The display invites visitors to learn more about Wellington County’s  pride history and add their own story to the Revelation Rainbow – a colourful, empowering,  sometimes sad, and often humourous collection of anecdotes.  

“The Minto Pride Committee is very grateful for the opportunity to showcase our community  and our story,” says Rosie Krul, Treasurer/Communications Coordinator, Minto Pride Committee.  “Minto Pride is a relatively new organization, but the history of Pride is not, and it deserves to be  acknowledged and celebrated. We are honoured to have our voices amplified, and to be  involved in this project by helping amplify the voices of others.” 

Our Small Town PRIDE is presented in partnership with Minto Pride, a group working to  encourage inclusion and increase visibility of the LGBTQ+ community in the Town of Minto, while  promoting education on the diversity of gender, sex, and sexual identity. 

“I am grateful to be part of this project,” says Amy Dunlop, Assistant Curator. “It is a pleasure to  work collaboratively with the Minto Pride Committee to continue to add diversity and inclusion  to our collections and the stories we share at WCMA.” 

Our Small Town PRIDE will be on display from May 27, throughout Pride Month, and beyond  until February 4, 2024. 

The Wellington County Museum and Archives is located on Wellington  Road 18 between Fergus and Elora.
