Milwaukee’s PrideFest is a huge, outdoor, 3-day event held annually at the Summerfest Festival Grounds, June 8 – 10, 2011. Although FORGE is taking a year off and will not be one of the co-sponsors of the Health and Wellness area, we continue to be excited at the growth of the Festival as a whole, and the Health and Wellness area, in particular.

This growing effort offers free booth space and publicity to LGBT organizations that agree to sponsor interactive activities designed to increase participants’ awareness of healthy behaviors. It’s a creative, fun way to let our LGBT community know that it matters to us that everyone get healthy enough to stick around for a long while to come.
