PrideFest Milwaukee is three days of fun music, comedy, food, self-expression, and family-friendly activities held on June 6-9, 2019. 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 needs and issues to be communicated, and for networking and support to be shared!
For the past several years, UUCW has organized the SE Wisconsin UU presence in the Milwaukee Pride Parade. The group will gather at 1:30 pm on Sunday, June 9, on S. 2nd St. near Lapham Blvd. in Milwaukee, with parade step-off at 2:00 pm. Trevor Murbach will be our Parade Marshall this year, you can contact him with questions. He will be taking responsibility for communicating with interested participants from local UU congregations and will be on site at the parade to marshal our group.
Interested in taking part in the parade? SIGN UP and be prepared to get all decked out in your best rainbow gear (optional)!
This year, once again UUCW will be a part of the Blessed@Pridefest 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.”
We’d love to have your help as volunteers in the booth — sign up here.
