LGBTQ community hopes for growing acceptance in Door County

Members of Door County's LGBTQ community are seeing more acceptance among people and businesses.  They'd like to build on that success. October is LGBTQ+ history month. Open Door Pride Fest has become an annual summer event in Sturgeon Bay for all people.  Organizer Cathy Grier says the festival is among the efforts to help the community overall and friends and family, in particular, better understand LGBTQ issues.

 

 

 

Wisconsin has been a pioneer in equal rights protection laws.  That's inspired other states to enact similar legislation.  Sandy Brown of PFLAG Door County, however, says the Badger State still has a ways to go.

 

 

 

Among the efforts to make Door County more welcoming to visitors with alternative lifestyles and ethnicities is the “We Welcome All” campaign adopted by some local businesses.
