A very accepting and immeasurably helpful organization, Milwaukee Pride benefits the community by providing resources to and fostering connections with the city's rich LGBT+ community. Their yearly PrideFest held at the SummerFest grounds in June is perhaps their most well-known event and act of community outreach, accepting and also celebrating each person's identity. Milwaukee Pride also helps keep its members and the LGBT+ community safe in numerous ways, directly and indirectly, through their community outreach and education as well as dedication to information security. As a volunteer for PrideFest, I am impressed at their chief dedication to the community's safety during the festival as well as their incredibly accepting and personal volunteer atmosphere.
