Celebrate the Gay Rights State!

February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free – $20
Feb 25th is the 42nd anniversary of Wisconsin being the first Gay Rights State in the nation. For over a decade, our elders fought to create a better world for us all. On February 25, 1982, they were victorious! After a long, uphill battle, Wisconsin made it illegal to discriminate against gays and lesbians in housing, employment, credit, or public accommodation.
Today, there are still states that do not offer these protections — and worse yet, there are many states — including Wisconsin — where these rights are endangered.
The Wisconsin LGBTQ History Project is teaming up with Fluid for a fundraiser — celebrating our proud past and inspiring a more equitable future for all Wisconsin citizens.
All funds raised will be reinvested in the History Project website, so that our history can ALWAYS be seen, at a time when our history is being banned in local libraries and schools. We’re hoping to raise $2,000 or more!
Get a chance to symbolically sign the bill! $20 donation gets your name on the bill! Bring your friends and not only preserve history… MAKE IT. Sign by yourself or as a group. Then the “bill” will be given to the history project!!!!
There will be a special presentation, special guests, a special history slideshow, and special “local history themed” Tito’s Vodka cocktails!
There will be MILWAUKEE DRAG book signings/sales with authors Michail Takach and Miss BJ Daniels!
Be here and BE SEEN!

Can’t attend — but want to help?

Please consider a tax-deductible donation to the Wisconsin LGBTQ History Project — and help us achieve our goal of funding our 2024 website budget!

Your gift — in any amount — will have tremendous meaning to an all-volunteer organization who has been funding our own costs for 30 years. And your investment will allow us to continue capturing the unique and diverse stories of our community, so that everyone’s story can be seen.

Together, we will rise above the hate that threatens us all.
