Who will win the 2019 VIP Weekend Experience?

Nicole Sutton, our 2018 Weekend VIP, shares her experience.

“The fact that I was last year’s winner of the Milwaukee PrideFest VIP experience still feels surreal!” said Nicole.

“I don’t have one big highlight that was special because the entire weekend was so memorable.  Where do I begin?

  • Enjoying a staycation at the Journeyman Hotel made me feel like a queen. The room, location and daily surprises in the room made a hectic weekend feel luxurious.
  • Access to the VIP lounge for snacks and view was so nice —  it was amazing to take the time to recharge, and also reflect on how great the weekend is.
  • Sitting on the stage during the Opening Ceremony was a thrill!  Not just to hear the speakers, but also know how much incredible talent has graced the stage over the years.   Over the years, I have spent many hours at the Dance Pavilion. It’s special because I have followed so many of the performers, and have become friends with many of them.

It’s one thing to see a friend shine on that stage, but I also felt a level of pride in knowing that more and more people are enjoying their talents every year.”

“Milwaukee Pride is a time for all of us to celebrate with our tribe.  You just can’t put a price on that. Whether it is people that I see year-round at various gigs, or the random guy in the crowd  who was covering me in glitter while we watched a drag show together, the tribe grows bigger every year.

I wanted to share my sincere gratitude for selecting me. I’ll hold those moments in my heart always.”
