Pride march, festival June 10

LEWISTON — Forty-eight years ago a police raid on the LGBTQ+ community at the Stonewall Inn, in New York City, lead to a series of protests. The LGBTQ+ community began to organize, which led to the first pride parades. In 1978, openly gay San Francisco public official, Harvey Milk, asked Gilbert Baker to design a new symbol of pride, which resulted in the first Pride Flag.

Today the Lewiston-Auburn LGBTQ+ community is carrying on the tradition of pride, and the inspiration of that original 1978 flag.

The pride celebration will be held Saturday, June 10, at Simard-Payne Park. Admission is free, and there will be free garage parking. Those wishing to march should gather at 10 a.m. The festival will run from noon to 4 p.m.

Attendees may dunk-tank some local politicians, listen to live music, and see performances of camp and burlesque. A variety of food trucks, a bounce house and more fun and games will also be available.
