August 19, 2015, is Polygamy Day 15

On August 19, 2015, unrelated consenting adult polygamy supporters (UCAPs) are celebrating "Polygamy Day 15" – the fifteenth year of annual Polygamy Day ® celebrations.  

August   19th   of   every   year   is   the   official   date   of   Polygamy   Day   ®.       Starting   in   2001,   supporters   of   unrelated   consenting   adult   polygamy   (UCAP)   have   been   celebrating   this   date   each   year.   Because   that   first   celebration   in   2001   occurred   in   the   "Year   1"   of   the   new   millennium,   each   following   "Polygamy   Day"   is   identified   numerically   on   up   to   the   current   "Polygamy   Day   15"   of   August   19,   2015. 
The   event   first   started   in   Old   Orchard   Beach,   Maine,   as   an   organized   get-together   for   polygamy   activists   -   not   religiously   connected   with   Mormon   polygamy   or   Muslim   polygamy.     The   annual   celebration   transformed   into   a   nationwide,   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."     Ironically,   the   U.S.   Patent   and   Trademark   Office   officially   trademarked,   Polygamy   Day   ®,   on   June   26,   2007   -   exactly   four   years   after   Lawrence   v.   Texas   and   exactly   eight   years   before   Obergefell   v.   Hodges   were   decided   by   the   Supreme   Court 
Polygamy   Rights   supporters   individually   celebrate   each   August   19th   to   reflect   on   the   political   and   legal   progress   toward   their   freedom   over   the   prior   year.   New   or   ongoing   strategies   for   the   forthcoming   year   of   activism   are   also   contemplated   and   organized. 
Information   about   Polygamy   Day,   Inc.   plus   a   general   history   of   Polygamy   Day   ®   are   available   online   at     Specific   news   from   over   the   previous   year   leading   up   to   "Polygamy   Day   15"   appears   at 
With   some   major   events   over   the   previous   year   generating   real   enthusiasm   and   hope   for   planning   even   more   activism   for   the   coming   year,   unrelated   consenting   adult   pro-polygamists   throughout   America   undoubtedly   have   reason   to   celebrate   on   this   August   19,   2015   -     "Polygamy   Day   15,"   the   fifteenth   year   of   celebrations.
