Most Dynamic Gay Pride Celebration in the Midwest – Milwaukee Pride Fest June 11, 12 and 13

The Gay People’s Union was the first organization in Milwaukee to host an event that had Pride appeal, with over 350 people attending the GPU Ball in 1974. Other dances and parties were hosted in the years that followed, but it wasn’t until after the 1987 March on Washington that the Pride Movement took a strong hold in Milwaukee.

Year after year, Milwaukee’s Gay Pride grew!  Now attracting over 15,000 people, the Pride Fest  weekend showcases over  140 bands and artists and entertainers from all over the  world!


This year we are treated to the talents of  KATHY GRIFFIN,  PATTI  LaBELLE, JOAN RIVERS,
