MADISON, Wis. — Yesterday, Gov. Tony Evers raised the Pride Flag over the Wisconsin State Capitol for the third time in state history, and signed three executive orders supporting the LGBTQ community. Gov. Evers authorized all state buildings to fly the Pride Flag during the month of June, directed cabinet agencies to use gender-neutral language, and prohibited the use of state and federal funds for conversion therapy.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Vice Chair Rep. Lee Snodgrass released the following statement:

“As an out, bi-identified woman serving in the legislature and the chair of the legislative LGBTQ Caucus, I honor the importance of visibility, recognition, and celebration of our LGBTQ community. Pride was born of a riot and continues as a celebration and a reminder that the fight for full equality is ongoing and intersectional. I am grateful for Gov. Evers’ leadership and commitment to celebrating and supporting LGBTQ Wisconsinites. Together, we can work towards building a more inclusive Wisconsin, and ensure our state is a safe and just place where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.”
