On August 19, 2022, families and supporters of UCAP, unrelated consenting adult polygamy, are celebrating "Polygamy Day 22" – the twenty-second year of annual Polygamy Day ® celebrations.
August 19th is the official Polygamy Day ®. Each year since 2001, unrelated consenting adult polygamy (UCAP) supporters have been celebrating August 19th. With that first celebration in "Year 1" of the new century, each subsequent "Polygamy Day" has been numbered up to the current "Polygamy Day 22" of August 19, 2022.
This event originated in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, as an organized get-together for pro-polygamists - with no connection to Mormon polygamy or Muslim polygamy. The celebration expanded into a religiously-neutral event everywhere for all forms of unrelated consenting adult polygamy in supporters’ own local areas.
Polygamy Day ® is promoted by Polygamy Day, Inc. Incorporated in the State of Maine, in 2002, Polygamy Day, Inc. filed for the federal trademark on "Polygamy Day 6." Surprisingly, 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 assess the previous year’s activism and to develop strategies for the upcoming year.

This previous year brought another milestone, another pundit gone, another sadness, and another new hope. The National Polygamy Advocate Podcast passed 200 weekly posted episodes of its history archive of past media interviews. A formerly disgraced pundit (Jeffrey Toobin) again left CNN. One of the wives (Christine) left the Brown family on TLC’s show, "Sister Wives." The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade (1973) with Dobbs v. Jackson (2022), creating new hope that Reynolds v. United States (1878) could be overturned too. UCAPs have much to contemplate during this twenty-second annual celebration, August 19, 2022 - "Polygamy Day 22."
