June is National Pride Month as the LGBTQ community in Door County is planning a weeklong celebration. Open Door Pride Festival will be held on Saturday, June 23 at Martin Park from 11 am to 5 pm but many events will be held leading up to the fest. Co-organizer Brit Gartner says the festival and week will include more than great music.
Mayor Thad Birmingham has proclaimed June 18-24 as Open Door Pride Week in Sturgeon Bay. Open Door Pride’s mission is to affirm the community’s diversity through inclusion for all. Over 170 people attended last year’s Open Door Pride Festival.
