Pride Portland! is a celebration of Portland, Maine’s LGBTQIA — lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, ally/asexual community. Our goal is to bring people together to celebrate the achievements of the LGBTQA movement, remember our history and raise awareness of the work that still needs to be done. Fostering and honoring inclusivity, diversity and unity, Pride Portland! builds stronger connections amongst individuals, organizations and businesses.
Pride Portland! is volunteer-run and EqualityMaine is serving as our non-profit fiscal sponsor.
