Our premier event, the Awards event is traditionally held in the spring. Awards are presented each year to leaders in Maine’s LGBTQ+ equality movement.

Wicked Queer Cruise

Every year in June, we set sail on a cruise around Casco Bay to celebrate Pride! Refreshing drinks. Seafood. DJs playing the queerest tunes. This is how Maine does Pride.

Pride celebrations are also held in over two dozen communities around the state.

The Great Pumpkin Ball

The Great Pumpkin Ball is our annual Halloween celebration and the largest Halloween party in the state of Maine with over 1200 attendees each year. Held at the State Theatre in Portland, the event is an 18+ community costume ball, featuring dancing, drag performers, prizes and a costume contest like no other.
