August 19, 2020, is Polygamy Day 19


On August 19, 2020, supporters of unrelated consenting adult polygamy (UCAPs) are celebrating "Polygamy Day 20" - concluding the second decade of annual Polygamy Day ® celebrations.

August 19th is the official Polygamy Day ®. From 2001, unrelated consenting adult polygamy (UCAP) supporters have been celebrating August 19th every year. With that first celebration in "Year 1" of the new century, every subsequent "Polygamy Day" has been enumerated up to the current "Polygamy Day 20” of August 19, 2020.

This event originated in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, as an organized get-together for pro-polygamists unconnected with Mormon polygamy or Muslim polygamy. Over the years, the event expanded into a religiously-neutral celebration everywhere for all forms of unrelated consenting adult polygamy in supporters' own local areas.

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." Unexpectedly, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office registered, Polygamy Day ®, on June 26, 2007 - four years after Lawrence v. Texas and eight years before Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court Decisions.

Polygamy Rights supporters celebrate each August 19th to review the past year's activism and to plan the upcoming year's strategies.

Information about Polygamy Day ® is available at PolygamyDay.com. News from the year leading up to "Polygamy Day 20” appears at

This previous year brought a new milestone, new victory, new fear, and historic celebration. The National Polygamy Advocate Podcast crossed over 100 weekly posted episodes to its history archive of past media interviews. Utah de-felonized uncoerced bigamy to an infraction. The COVID-19 crisis caused polygamists to “stay quiet” - especially polygamous families living in separated housing. One day ago, August 18th marked the 100th anniversary of US women's right to vote. Unable to celebrate “too publicly” this year, UCAPs nevertheless have much to consider even privately during this twentieth year (two decades) of celebrations, August 19, 2020 - "Polygamy Day 20.”
