Portland Pride Week kicks off
PORTLAND (WGME) The Portland "Week of Pride" kicked off Sunday with its annual pride brunch.
The Maine Democratic Party and LGBT community got together to celebrate at Grace, a restaurant in Portland.
They used the event to recognize equality victories and raise money for Congressman Mike Michaud's fall campaign.
Ben Grant, the chair of the Maine democratic party, said they're in full gear preparing for the November election.
A "Pride Parade" will take place next Saturday to cap off the week of events.
