PrideFest Milwaukee is three days of fun music, comedy, food, self-expression, and family-friendly activities held on June 7-10, 2018. This exciting community experience produced each year by the non-profit organization Milwaukee Pride, Inc. PrideFest is a celebration of the culture and accomplishments of our local LGBTQ+ community, a time for issues to be communicated, and for networking and support to be shared!
It’s time to get all decked out in your best rainbow gear (optional) and grin at all the folks looking to find out about our beloved community! We are hosting a fun photo booth and Blessing Booth in cooperation with the United Church of Christ Churches and Milwaukee Jewish Federation.
This year, the SE Wisconsin Unitarian Universalist Congregations are planning to participate at PrideFest via a booth in the Health and Wellness Commons alongside our many Milwaukee-Area LGBTQ+ affirming faith communities. We’re partnering with the Queer and Allied Faith Leaders of Milwaukee (QAFL) to host a part of the festival where attendees can know they are “blessed and beloved.” Recently, Rev. Suzelle Lynch and Intern Minister Kimberlee Tomczak Carlson met with QAFL to plan the UU presence at PrideFest, and we’d love to have your help in our booth — volunteers get in for FREE!
Pride Parade, too? For the past several years, UUCW has organized the SE Wisconsin UU presence in the Milwaukee Pride Parade, too, which steps off at 2:00 pm on Sunday, June 10, on S. 2nd St. near Lapham Blvd. in Milwaukee. Trevor Murbach will be our Parade Marshall this year. You can contact him with questions via the church office. He will be responsible for communicating with interested participants and will be at the parade site to marshal our group.
Join us in continuing our UU tradition of celebrating people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and the joyful work of linking communities, generations, and diverse groups at Pride!
