A written transcript of the address is below: 

“Hello, this is State Senator Tim Carpenter, I’d like to invite you to celebrate “Pride Month” with me this June. Ever since the Stonewall Uprising in June of 1969, June is a special time for us to come together to show our pride in our identity and the contributions that LGBTQ people have made to society. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first Pride celebration, making it the Pride jubilee!

“I would like to thank Governor Evers for celebrating with us by flying the rainbow flag over our State Capitol, signifying his support for people all across the spectrum. I would also like to thank him for his actions he has taken to support the community, especially his veto of a bill this session that would have undermined Wisconsin’s protections for sexual orientation, national origin, and ancestry.

“Although there is still is much more work to do in Wisconsin as we move forward, such as ending the practice of conversion therapy in our state, I am extremely proud of the progress our state has made during my lifetime. Although celebrations this year will be affected by physical distancing, I look forward to seeing the creative ways that everyone expresses their pride this June!”
