August 19, 2017, is Polygamy Day 17

On August 19, 2017, UCAPs (unrelated consenting adult polygamy supporters) are noting and celebrating "Polygamy Day 17" – the seventeenth year of annual Polygamy Day ® celebrations.  

August 19th of is the official date of Polygamy Day ®. Starting in 2001, unrelated consenting adult polygamy supporters (UCAPs) have celebrated this date every year ever since. With that first celebration happening during "Year 1" of the new century, every "Polygamy Day" since has been labelled numerically up to the current "Polygamy Day 17" of August 19, 2017. 
This event originated in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, as an organized get-together for pro-polygamy activists, unconnected to Mormon polygamy or Muslim polygamy. Over the years, the celebration transformed into a broader, nationwide, religiously-neutral event for all forms of unrelated consenting adult pro-polygamists in their own local geographies. 
Polygamy Day ® is promoted by Polygamy Day, Inc., incorporated in 2002 in the State of Maine. Polygamy Day, Inc. filed for the federal trademark on "Polygamy Day 6." Surprisingly, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially trademarked, Polygamy Day ®, on June 26, 2007 - four years after the Lawrence v. Texas and eight years before the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court Decisions. 
Polygamy Rights supporters celebrate each August 19th to assess and strategize the legal and political progress over the preceding year. Strategies for the upcoming year of activism are also organized. 
Information about the history of Polygamy Day ® and Polygamy Day, Inc. are available at Detailed news from the previous year leading up to "Polygamy Day 17" appears at 
This past year brought more setback than progress. The US Supreme Court declined to hear the reversed Brown v. Buhman (“Sister Wives”) case in January; and, Canada's B.C. Supreme Court found two men “guilty of polygamy” in July (despite no other crimes occurring). Surely, unrelated consenting adult pro-polygamists do have much to consider and strategize on this seventeenth year of the celebrations, August 19, 2017 - "Polygamy Day 17."
