Diverse & Resilient

Diverse & Resilient Diverse & Resilient was founded by Gary Hollander in 1995 as a program to build the capacity of LGBT groups in Wisconsin.

At Diverse & Resilient, we see a future in which le***an, gay, bisexual, transgender, and q***r people in Wisconsin thrive, living healthy, satisfying lives in safe, supportive communities. Our name serves as reminder that LGBTQ people are everywhere, engage in interesting and meaningful lives, and contribute to the welfare of each other and the broader community.

October 11th is ! Feat. Kathy Flores, Director of Diverse & Resilient Appleton & statewide Anti-Violence Program.

Kathy writes, "My coming out experience revealed to me that it is never too late to choose oneself."

This month we are celebrating our community and uplifting the narratives of their coming out experiences. Coming out can be an empowering experience but we recognize those who cannot be out in public or private spaces. Celebrate with us! Share with us in the comments a sentence or two about what your coming out experience revealed to you? If you're still exploring, what has this journey been like?

The LGBTQ respondents in the Fox Valley were about twice as likely to experience symptoms of anxiety and 11 times more likely to have attempted su***de at least once in the last year.
"Hate violence … social exclusion, social isolation, oppression by the systems that aren't designed by us, for us or with us, are all part of the problem," Flores said.

5% of Fox Valley residents say they've made su***de plans in the last year, 10% have thought about it, a wellness survey shows.

School resource for 'gender-expansive preschoolers' attacked by GOP candidate Tim Michels

"The reality is that trans and q***r kids exist at all grade levels," Juchems said. "Wishing they weren't there doesn't make them not be who they are. This type of rhetoric is scaring and making our youth very nervous around the state, as well as making families nervous and scared for their child's safety." Brian Juchems GSAFE

Republican Tim Michels says Democratic Gov. Tony Evers is allowing the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to promote "transgender resources" for preschoolers. The DPI says attacks based on a 2018 conference handout aimed at making schools safe and welcoming for all students.

The group will host its virtual launch on Friday, September 9, 2022 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. Registration is open to anyone who is interested in promoting health through vaccines and is available at

What do some of our youths do on a Friday evening? Julia Yang and Sae Chris are volunteering with us and putting together 100 care packages that will be available for distribution and pickup next week. These care packages contain urgent need items for youth who identify as LGBTQIA+ and facing homelessness or housing instability.

In addition, Julia and Sae Chris volunteered for our 414ALL campaign by putting together 200 bags of protective sexual health barriers.

414ALL is a condom campaign aimed at reducing HIV/STI infections and teen pregnancy rates in Milwaukee, and bringing awareness to HIV/STI prevention within the LGBTQIA+ community. Thanks Julia and Sae Chris!

Our Story

Diverse & Resilient was founded by Gary Hollander in 1995 as a program to build the capacity of LGBTQ groups in Wisconsin. We have grown to be an independent nonprofit agency that employs 19 staff and serves over 5,000 LGBTQ people every year. We do both capacity-building and direct-service work to address the health disparities experienced by LGBTQ people in Wisconsin. Our work is focused on six priority areas: Acceptance, Cultivating Leaders, Mental Health, Sexual Health, Partner & Community Violence, and Substance Use.

Since Gallup's initial measure on support for gay marriage in 1996, when 27% backed it, the percentage of U.S. adults saying it should be legally recognized has climbed by 40 percentage points. Progress, but further to go.

(Disclaimer: I am hoping and praying that t.Rump comes to his senses and changes his mind about coming to Kenosha today and inciting violence.)
Our state Republican legislative leaders convened a special session yesterday (requested by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers) to consider policing policies on Monday. This session was adjourned after THIRTY SECONDS with no assurances the Republican politicians would reschedule any time soon ! THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
Once again, they kicked the can down the road saying a task force might review legislation in the coming months and perhaps take votes on these issues sometime in 2021 ! What the . . .?
This is a shocking example of what the Republican government in Wisconsin thinks of current policing policies and racism in law enforcement.
There is much to be done. Peaceful protesting MUST continue. Voicing our outrage to local, state and federal government officials is imperative. And voting is vital !

It is with a mix of great sorrow, anger and deep frustration that the unnecessary violence against POC continues across this land. As an ally to the Black Lives Matter movement, it makes me more determined than ever to do whatever I can to make a difference.

All of us MUST rise up and out of our comfort zones to denounce this unnecessary violence by the police -- whose sworn duty is to protect and serve all the people.

If you are unable to join the protestors who march for justice in Kenosha and elsewhere, consider standing with me and others in solidarity and outrage at what is happening in our City, our State, our Country and throughout the world. Our outrage eclipses those who try to defend and who perpetuate these injustices.

Please join me and express your support for all victims of police violence.

“Stand for Justice”
Every Wed. & Sat. on 27th & Oklahoma from 12 – 1:30 p.m.
Bring a chair, a sign and water.

Remember: Each of us can make a difference.
We noticed your lovely sign and stopped for a couple of photos on our way home from the protest today. ❤️
