Pride Festival in Bangor

Posted June 27, 2011, at 6:38 p.m.

Supporters paraded through downtown Bangor as part of the Pride Festival in West Market Square on Saturday, June 25, 2011. Bangor Pride 2011, sponsored by The Bridge Alliance, kicked off with a film Friday night and continued with speakers, musicians, informational booths, and children’s activities Saturday afternoon, followed by a dance in the square. The Bridge Alliance, founded four years ago, grew out of Northern Maine Pride, which for more than a decade sponsored the gay pride parade in Bangor. Since its founding four year ago, the Bridge Alliance has offered monthly dances, a prom and events for GLBT families. (Photo courtesy of Michele Benoit)
