Portland Pride

Pride Portland brings people in the Greater Portland, Maine area together for an annual parade and festival to celebrate and honor the accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ movement, raise awareness of the community’s ongoing struggles, and foster an environment of inclusivity, accessibility and solidarity. This year, PMA will participate in the Parade and the festival in Deering Oaks Park, and host an afternoon of art-making on the Museum’s Congress Street plaza. Join us to commemorate fifty years of LGBTQ+ history in a free, day-long event.
