Gay marriage sponsor serves as grand marshal

Posted June 20, 2009, at 4:46 p.m.

PORTLAND, Maine — The state senator who sponsored Maine’s gay marriage law was the star of the show in Portland on Saturday.

Sen. Dennis Damon, D-Trenton, was grand marshal of the Southern Maine Pride parade.

Participants carried a 900-foot-long rainbow flag that stretched for blocks as the parade moved from Monument Square to a festival in Deering Oaks Park, featuring speeches, entertainment and dancing.

Maine became the fifth state to allow gay marriage last month. Since then, New Hampshire adopted its own a gay marriage law.
