This year, for the first time, Milwaukee has achieved a perfect score on the Municipal Equality Index. The MEI looks at how LGBTQ friendly a city’s laws, policies and services are. 

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett stresses the importance of this report and Milwaukee’s progress: "When we send that message that we are an inclusive city, we are sending a message of love and understanding and respect — and that’s important for us to do."

The Brewers are back in town Friday after sweeping the Colorado Rockies in the first round of the playoffs. So, it’s no surprise that there's an increase in demand for Brewers tickets. But tickets aren’t so easy to get this late in the game — and for reasons you might not expect.

The Milwaukee Brewers won their first playoff game 3-2 on Thursday. Diehard fans showed up to Miller Park hours before their game against the Colorado Rockies. Fans were busy playing music, grilling and tailgating.

“Do you want to see my tattoo to show you I really love the Brewers?" said Donald Matovich, a tailgater who loves the Brewers so much that, yes, he has a tattoo to prove it.

Dozens of fast food workers marched in Milwaukee on Wednesday in favor of a minimum wage increase and a right to unionize. This was a part of nationwide effort to get local employers to increase their minimum hourly wage to $15.

Solo Littlejohn is a fast food worker and one of the people who called for a higher minimum wage at a rally on the city's near north side.
