This sign was carried in the Portland Pride parade on June 20, 2009 after Governor Baldacci signed the marriage equality law in Maine the month before. But in November, a “people’s veto” repealed the marriage law at referendum.
In 2012, advocates used a citizen initiative process to place a marriage law before voters, who this time approved of the measure allowing same-sex couples to marry.
