Share your Moments of Pride!

Moments matter.  Stories matter. Our history matters.  And, in celebration of our 27th anniversary, we’re announcing a daily ticket giveaway, celebrating YOUR moments in LGBT history!

From 1987 to 2013, we’ll be remembering the triumphs we shared as a community over the past 27 years. Each day, we’re counting down a year in our history — and asking you to share your story of what moments YOU made that year.

What did the year mean to you? What happened that year that you’ll never forget? Who were you then vs. who are you now?

One comment will be drawn each day, for a pair of PrideFest Milwaukee general admission tickets, so that you can MAKE YOUR MOMENT again with us this year! All winning entries will be added to our Facebook Timeline and become part of our community history!

Visit our Facebook page to share YOUR moments — and be sure to “like” and comment on your favorite stories!


Show Your Pride in our 2013 photo contest!

Were you at PrideFest Milwaukee 2013?

Did you take photos of your Pride family at this year’s “reunion?”

Share YOUR pride and joy in this year’s Show Your Pride photo contest!

Here’s how it works:

  • Post your own, original photos to our Facebook wall
  • Tag friends and family in the photos
  • Add the caption “Show Your Pride 2013”

We will be collecting photos until midnight on Sunday, July 21.   Our Board of Directors will review all photos  and chose three winning contestants.   Photos will be considered for five specific criteria, including cinematography, emotion, uniqueness,  diversity, and how well the image reflects the spirit of PrideFest Milwaukee.  The number of “likes” a photo receives from the community will earn bonus points!

Three photos will be drawn on Monday, July 22 — and each winner will receive:

  • Two weekend passes to PrideFest Milwaukee 2014
  • $50 VISA gift card to spend at PrideFest 2014
  • …and your image will be part of our “marquee” banner that will appear on PrideFest 2014 advertising!

Check out our contestants from PrideFest 2012 at our Facebook photo album.

So come on, let’s see your Pride!  This contest is officially ON!
