To celebrate Madison Pride weekend, the Wisconsin Alumni Association hosted a Badger Pride Open House on Aug. 17 to welcome LGBTQ+ alumni and their families to the new Alumni Park space. The 90-plus attendees enjoyed music by the Angela Puerta Band, pontoon boat rides, caricature drawings, and more.
