A Door County LGBTQ community leader believes some proposed bills in Wisconsin aimed at addressing inequality are much needed. The bills include the Marriage and Family Equality Act which would make state statutes gender neutral and recognize more legal parentage for same-sex couples. Another bill would create a transgender equality task force. Founder and Chair of Open Door Pride Cathy Grier says these are much needed in the State of Wisconsin as there is still too much discrimination. Grier added equality for all would make society better as a whole.
June is National Pride Month. Open Door Pride Fest will be on Saturday, June 22nd at Martin Park in Sturgeon Bay.
