Bangor rolls out welcome mat for Pride Week

Written by

BANGOR - Pride week is officially underway in Greater Bangor.

As one of the kickoff events, a gathering was held Monday morning at the freshly painted rainbow crosswalk in downtown Bangor.


Pride officials say the week is a time to reflect on how far society has come in terms of respecting people, regardless of sexual orientation.


"We're still moving forward. Progress is being made. There's still a lot that needs to happen but we're seeing so much support in this community," Bangor Pride Co-Chair Ambureen Rana said.


"Last year was the biggest Pride Festival we ever had and we're absolutely going to surpass that this year," she said.


A variety of events are being held to celebrate Pride Week,  including a children's book night and an open mic night.
