2019 Parade & Festival Registration
In 1987, Portland, Maine held its first Pride march. Pride Portland! became the volunteer-run planning organization to host this march in 2014, when the festival was added to the celebration. This year, Pride Portland! celebrates its 6th year alongside the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. The first NYC Pride Rally occurred one month after the Stonewall Riots in June of 1969 when 500 people gathered for a “Gay Power” demonstration in Washington Square, followed by a candlelight vigil in Sheridan Square. Today Pride is recognized in more than 70 countries. This year, we invite you to help us honor the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots as we celebrate the achievements of the LGBTQ+ movement, remember our history, raise awareness of our ongoing struggles, and foster an environment of inclusivity, accessibility, and solidarity.
We encourage the use of the online registration system as a quick, convenient and secure way to process your registration request. Paper registration forms may also be submitted, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy. Pride Portland! is continuing its relationship with EqualityMaine as our non-profit fiscal sponsor. All monetary transactions to Pride Portland! will be processed through EqualityMaine.
