Milwaukee Moves Forward

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Sometimes referred to as the City of Festivals, Milwaukee became the first city in Wisconsin to celebrate the NOH8 Campaign earlier this summer as we continued our ongoing tour across the nation. Wisconsinites lined up early to have the chance to take their own official NOH8 photo, and they didn't hesitate when it came to putting their own unique spin on the classic NOH8 set-up. We saw such spirited styling in Milwaukee, and it was great seeing how each person took a concept and made it their own!

Of course, a handful of supporters wanted to use iconic cheeseheads to represent their state. The local chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence even incorporated their cheeseheads seamlessly into their habits. Others were more subtle, wanting to feature their favorite local teams.

NOH8 Co-Founders Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley talk about the photo shoot on Milwaukee's Fox 6 Now Morning News.

The Pride Alliance from the University of Wisconsin - Waukesha set up a table at the photo shoot, taking the time to talk to people about their organization and the work they do at University of Wisconsin. We also had a number of talented musicians who wanted to channel their music in their portraits.

Team NOH8 would like to thank the InterContinental Hotel Milwaukee for their incredible hospitality, as well as Mario Lopez and his team at Z2 Marketing for really dedicating themselves to making this event a success and going above and beyond when necessary. We couldn't have done this without them, and we hope all of you appreciate their efforts to bring us to Milwaukee as much as we do!
