Milwaukee Pride kicks off the 31st Annual PrideFest Milwaukee opening ceremonies at the Dance Pavilion on Friday, June 8, at 3 p.m.

Journalist and politician Danica Roem will be the keynote speaker. When elected to the Virginia House of Delegates in 2017, Roem became the first openly transgender individual to be elected and serve in any U.S. legislature.

To increase community access to PrideFest Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Pride Board of Directors is offering free admission with a $1 donation per person to the PrideFest Plus One Campaign. This year's campaign supports Diverse & Resilient, which impacts thousands of local LGBTQ lives every year with critical health care programs. This offer will only be valid on Friday, June 8, 2:30-4:30 p.m.

Also, the 2018 Pride Awards will be presented, to 1st Annual Ride with Pride Cormac Kehoe ( Individual ); Ald. Cavalier Johnson of the Milwaukee Common Council ( Ally ); the Queer Zine Archive Project ( Organization ); transgender prom queen Nikko Nelson ( Valor ); and History of Gay Milwaukee's Facebook administrator, Jamie Taylor ( Legacy ).

PrideFest Milwaukee will welcome the B-52s, Jussie Smollett and Daya to the Miller Lite Main stage this June 8-10 on the Summerfest Grounds.

PrideFest Milwaukee 2018 will be held at Henry W. Maier Festival Park. Visit Pridefest.com .
