Wisconsin Pride is now available to stream for free on the PBS App on all streaming devices and at pbswisconsin.org/pride. The broadcast premiere of the full documentary is 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 20 on PBS Wisconsin and Milwaukee PBS.

The all-new PBS Wisconsin documentary brings hidden LGBTQ+ stories forward and reconsiders our state’s history in that light. A groundbreaking collaboration between PBS Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Historical Society, the film reveals Wisconsin’s history in a more inclusive scope.

To celebrate the release of this important project, PBS Wisconsin is sharing 30 days of Pride on social media. Every day during the month of June, we will share content that highlights and celebrates the LGBTQ+ community on Facebook and Instagram.

PBS Wisconsin is proud to present Wisconsin Pride. This two-hour documentary and its premiere community events, supporting articles, blogs and more is in recognition of a community that was long overlooked in our state.

30 days of Pride is when we are celebrating the release of the documentary, but June 30, 2023 isn’t when PBS Wisconsin stops talking about the LGBTQ+ community. Wisconsin Pride is the beginning of a new conversation for us, and we are honored to have you join us.
