MAINE, Maine —

What is 'Pride'?

The month of June is dedicated to celebrating the unique identities and history of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community. Maine towns, cities, and organizations are hosting parades, events, and celebrations throughout the month in all corners of the state. Nearly 5 percent of the Maine population identifies as LGBT, according to The Williams Institute.
