Over the past 75 years,
Over the past 75 years, people in the LGBT community have experienced tremendous social change in America. Gay and lesbian culture was once a twilight world. Today, it’s all about rainbow families, LGBT wedding expos, and record-breaking pride celebrations. How did we get to here?
In LGBT Milwaukee, Michail Takach tells the story of how pride flowered in industrial Milwaukee — long before Stonewall — despite incredible odds. This latest entry in the Arcadia Publishing Images of Modern America series contains over 150 photographs curated from archives, publications and an array of community contributors.
Join us for a slideshow presentation, Q&A, book signing and reception celebrating the first-ever comprehensive social history ever published about LGBTQ Milwaukee.
Books will be available for purchase before, during and after the event.
The author is donating all proceeds to Milwaukee Pride, Inc. for the funding of local LGBTQ history education, outreach and preservation programs. Your dollars directly support Milwaukee Pride, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
