Our Mission

EqualityMaine is Maine's oldest and largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) political advocacy organization. Our members and supporters hail from every region of the state, brought together by a common goal: making equality a reality for all citizens.

We work to secure full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the state through political action, education, and collaboration. We envision a Maine in which lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their families have full equality in the hearts and minds of Maine people, and in all areas of the law.

Our Goals

  • To build political power for the LGBT community.
  • To ensure that Maine’s hate crimes laws are LGBT inclusive.
  • To ensure that Maine’s civil rights laws are LGBT inclusive.
  • To ensure that Maine’s family laws, including marriage, are LGBT inclusive.
  • To defeat anti-LGBT legislation and referenda.
  • To repeal anti-LGBT laws and statutes.
