Meet the Neighbors

That's the premise behind a new, educational billboard campaign that is showing up on the Milwaukee skyline.

The Gay Neighbor campaign, funded by Cream City Foundation in Milwaukee, features local families and encourages locals to visit http://www.gayneighbor.org/ to learn more about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community that has become a vibrant part of Milwaukee life.

The campaign website features the stories of families profiled on billboards . . . information on important issues impacting the LGBT community . . . and tips on ways to be supportive.

"The campaign hopes to dispel myths about gay couples and families and build more awareness about the realities of 'gay neighbors,'" Express Milwaukee reported. "We have common ground,” said Tim Clark, president of the Cream City Foundation. “We have families. We are positive, loving, happy people.”
