Pro-Polygamists Celebrate 14th Annual 'Polygamy Day'

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


On August 19, 2014, unrelated consenting adult polygamy supporters (UCAPs) around the country and beyond are celebrating "Polygamy Day 14" – the fourteenth year of annual Polygamy Day ® celebrations.

August 19th is the official date of Polygamy Day ®.   Ever since 2001, supporters of the rights for unrelated consenting adult polygamists (UCAPs) have been celebrating this date each year. Because that first celebration in 2001 occurred in the "Year 1" of the new millennium, each subsequent "Polygamy Day" is labeled numerically on up to the current "Polygamy Day 14" of August 19, 2014. 
   
In what started in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, as an organized get-together for polygamy activists (having no religious connection with Mormon polygamy or Muslim polygamy), the annual celebration later transformed into a nationwide and religiously-neutral celebration for all forms of unrelated consenting adult pro-polygamists in their own individual geographic locations. 
   
Polygamy Day ® is promoted by Polygamy Day, Inc.   The corporation was formed in 2002 in the State of Maine.   Polygamy Day, Inc. filed for the federal trademark on "Polygamy Day 6."   In an interesting irony, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially registered the trademark, Polygamy Day ®, on June 26, 2007.   That date was the fourth anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision, Lawrence v. Texas. 
   
Polygamy Rights supporters individually celebrate each August 19th to take note of the political and legal progress toward their freedom over the previous year.   New or recurring strategies for the coming year of activism are also considered and organized. 
   
Information about Polygamy Day, Inc. and a general history of Polygamy Day ® are available online at PolygamyDay.com.   Specific news from over the previous year leading up to "Polygamy Day 14" appears at

As events over the previous year give cause for real enthusiasm and hope for planning even more activism for the coming year, unrelated consenting adult pro-polygamists throughout America definitely have reason to celebrate on this August 19, 2014 -   "Polygamy Day 14," the fourteenth year of celebrations!
