Local billboards feature gay families


On Wednesday, Cream City Foundation unveiled their groundbreaking Gay Neighbor media campaign, a public education campaign aimed to challenge stereotypes about LGBT people and their families.

The campaign features 30 billboards, including a digital billboard on I-794.

The billboards show images of real families and showcase their values of love, family and commitment. This is the first media campaign of its kind in southeastern Wisconsin.

Cream City Foundation is an organization whose main purpose is to help create social change on behalf of LGBT people in southeastern Wisconsin.

Milwaukee Lover - would you please consider contacting me through the gayneighbor.org website in the media section- your comments are fantastic. I am doing the press for this event and I would love to be able to quote what you said - or go to the add your own story on the site and put those comments you said here in the story form. That would be fantastic. Any person can add their own story to the gayneighbor.org site. You can say I like my gay neighbors or I love a person who is gay. We would love to have a variety of stories.

I just saw their ad on the digital billboard on I-794. The thing that caught me about it was that it was simple and not "in your face" compared to other campaigns I've read about/seen around the country promoting something similar related to homosexuality. Even if you're against it (gay parenting), you have to admit that it's classy, honest, and not that controversial. Although I'm sure there will be some who will fly off the handle about it no matter what it would say or look like.
