Hate has real and deadly consequences. Charlie Howard was attacked and murdered in Bangor in 1984, simply because he was gay. Howard had a life and a future, both taken from him because of hatred for his identity.

EqualityMaine, first known as the Maine Lesbian/Gay Political Alliance (MLGPA), was founded in response to Charlie Howard's death.
