Mikah Meyer is traveling the country with two main goals: to visit every US National Park, and to spread a message of inclusion and love for LGBTQ people within the Christian faith. Meyer will be making two stops in Wisconsin this fall to talk and perform at local churches as part of his mission.

Meyer makes his first stop in Madison at Trinity Lutheran Church on September 26 at 6:30 p.m., followed by a visit to Mount Carmel Lutheran Church in Milwaukee on September 27, also at 6:30 p.m. There is no admission charge, though a freewill offering will be accepted.

The National Cathedral countertenor singer will be performing a cabaret concert sharing songs and stories from his non-stop, three year road trip to all 417 National Park Service sites. As heard on NPR seen in USA Today, Meyer has spent the past 2.5 years living in a cargo van while attempting to set a world record as the youngest person to visit the entirety of the National Park System. He’s been using the media attention to share a carpe diem message inspired by his father’s passing from cancer, to break stereotypes about LGBTQ people, and to further acceptance for LGBTQ Christians. To keep this project going he “sings for his supper” and receives donations at churches across the United States.
