Gay and Lesbian Wisconsin


Wisconsin is located in the Great Lakes region. The capital
of the state is Madison. The economy of Wisconsin is driven by manufacturing,
agriculture, and health care.

Tourism is also a major industry in Wisconsin. Tourist destinations such as
the House on the Rock near Spring Green, Circus World Museum in Baraboo,
and the collection of attractions around Wisconsin Dells each draw thousands
of visitors every year.

Since the anti-Vietnam movement in the late 1960s, the university community
in Madison has supported a liberal Democratic party, known for support for
gay rights and environmentalism, and for anti-war sentiment. In 1982, sexual
orientation was added by the state legislature as a protected category under
existing anti-discrimination laws. However, in November 2006, voters approved
a referendum banning gay marriages or civil unions in the state by a
margin of 59% to 41%.

Wisconsin is very popular for outdoor activities especially hunting and fishing.
The state is home to the Green Bay Packers.
