MADISON — Just in time for LGBTQ+ History Month (because Pride Month isn’t enough), U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Madison) has introduced two bills “to begin the process of creating a National Museum of American LGBTQ+ History and Culture.”
Expect taxpayers to pick up the tab for at least a portion of this latest woke tribute.
Pocan sounded as politically strident as ever in pushing the bills.
“It is vital to remember our collective past – particularly when certain states seek to constrain and repeal existing rights by passing bills that harm LGBTQ+ youth and our community at large. Let’s tell these stories, and honor the many contributions the LGBTQ+ community has made to this nation with a museum in Washington, D.C,” said Pocan, an openly gay member of congress and co-chair of the Congressional LGBTQ+ Equity Caucus, in a press release.
