Cross-Reference: Polygamy Day, August 19, polygamy activism

On August 19, 2013, supporters of unrelated consenting adult polygamy (UCAP) throughout North America are celebrating "Polygamy Day 13" – now being the thirteenth year of Polygamy Day ® celebrations.

August   19th   is   the   official   date   of   Polygamy   Day   ®.       Ever   since   the   first   "Polygamy   Day   1"   on   August   19,   2001,   supporters   of   polygamy   rights   for   unrelated   consenting   adults   have   been   celebrating   this   day   each   year,   Because   that   first   celebration   occurred   in   the   "Year   1"   of   the   new   millennium,   each   "Polygamy   Day"   thereafter   is   now   identified   numerically   on   up   to   the   current   "Polygamy   Day   13"   on   August   19,   2013. 
In   what   started   in   Old   Orchard   Beach,   Maine,   as   an   organized   get-together   among   polygamy   activists   (unconnected   to   Mormon   polygamy   or   Muslim   polygamy),   the   annual   celebration   subsequently   blossomed   into   a   nationwide,   religiously-neutral   celebration   among   all   forms   of   consenting-adult   pro-polygamists   in   their   own   local   areas. 
Polygamy   Day   ®   is   promoted   by   Polygamy   Day,   Inc.     The   corporation   was   formed   in   2002   in   the   state   of   Maine.     On   "Polygamy   Day   6,"   Polygamy   Day,   Inc.   filed   for   the   federal   trademark.     In   a   surprising   twist,   the   U.S.   Patent   and   Trademark   Office   officially   registered   the   corporation's   trademark,   Polygamy   Day   ®,   on   June   26,   2007   -   the   fourth   anniversary   of   the   U.S.   Supreme   Court   decision,   Lawrence   v.   Texas. 
Supporters   and   activists   around   the   country   individually   use   each   August   19th   to   note   the   preceding   year's   political   and   legal   progress   toward   freedom   for   unrelated   consenting   adult   polygamy   (UCAP).   Then,   individual   strategies   for   the   coming   year   of   polygamy   rights   activism   are   also   contemplated   and   organized. 
Information   about   Polygamy   Day,   Inc.   and   a   general   history   of   Polygamy   Day   ®   are   available   online   at     Specific   news   from   over   the   previous   year   leading   up   to   "Polygamy   Day   13"   appears   at 
In   the   fight   for   freedom   ,   as   events   over   the   previous   year   provide   real   motivation   for   planning   even   more   activism   for   the   coming   year,   consenting-adult   pro-polygamists   throughout   America   definitely   have   cause   to   celebrate   on   this   August   19,   2013   -     "Polygamy   Day   13,"   the   thirteenth   year   of   celebrations!
