“I am proud to fly the flag, a symbol of LGBTQ pride, above the steps of our courthouse.”

Likewise, Kenosha Pride Inc. President Dan Seaver expressed his excitement at the inclusionary step. 

“It’s a great thing to see it happening,” Seaver said. “I think it is important in that it adds that line of visibility that this is a welcoming community.”

The flag will also be flown at the courthouse for Kenosha Pride’s annual August celebration downtown, Aug. 20-22, Kreuser noted. 

This month, the Kenosha organization will host a benefit show at the Rhode in downtown Kenosha. That event will start at 7 p.m.
