The Northwoods Pride LGBTQ group (formerly Northern Highland LGBTQ) organizes the yearly Northwoods Pride Festival, as well as other local events for the Northwoods LGBTQ community.
The Northwoods Pride Festival has been running for three years. Our first festival was held in Arbor Vitae, WI, in 2017. In 2019 we moved to Rhinelander, WI to partner with the Nicolet College Rainbow Hodags group to organize the event.
Interested in learning more about the Nicolet College Rainbow Hodags? The Rainbow Hodags have been around since 2014, and the group is one of the most active groups on the Nicolet College campus. They provide support for and education about LGBTQ+ people in Northern Wisconsin. Rainbow Hodags student members, alumni, Nicolet College staff and faculty, and community members from across the Northwoods have worked together to improve the climate for LGBTQ+ folks.

*The acronym LGBTQ+ includes a lot of folks: lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, asexual, intersex, two-spirit and more sexual orientations and gender identities. Straight allies are integral, too!
