Calling all Milwaukee area LGBT health & wellness agencies, organizations, programs, projects and leaders!
Once again ARCW, BESTD Clinic, Diverse & Resilient, The Milwaukee LGBT Community Center, and Milwaukee Pride have joined together to engage our community in health and wellness during the PrideFest celebration from June 10-12, 2016.
As many of you know, last year’s health and wellness area had excellent attendance and decent weather. Over the two days, we gave away over 3,000 bottles of water, nearly 1,000 tote bags, two bicycles. Most importantly, PrideFest attendees had the chance to interact with over 50 booths from twenty‐six LGBT agencies, organizations, programs, and projects who came together to showcase the healthy assets of our community and raise awareness about health and wellness. For those who were there last year congratulate yourselves on a job well done for a successful Exercising Pride.
This year we have another opportunity to reach over 10,000 members of the LGBT community on the PrideFest grounds, delivering relevant health messages and providing opportunities for skills building and education—all focused on the critical health issues that affect the quality of life of all LGBT people. This is our chance to build on our successes of last year and move forward with the mission of determining our own health and identifying and addressing those barriers that stand in our way.
You are an important part of this mission as a leader of a Milwaukee LGBT organization and the PrideFest Health and Wellness Committee along with our community sponsors invite you to join us for Exercising Pride 2016.
Organizations that participate will receive the following benefits:
● Free booth space
