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     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!
