Visions of Inclusion: Youth Pride, Art Shows, Pride Walk, & Anthology
OUT Maine has partnered with the Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA), Rock City Cafe in Rockland, and Erickson Fields in Rockport to bring LGBTQ+ and allied youth and young adults’ art and writing to Midcoast Maine during Pride Month (June).
The theme for the art and writing exhibitions follows Rockland Main Street’s “Visions of Inclusion.” According to Rockland Main Street “in order to have a resilient community, it is integral that all identities are included, celebrated, and given a platform to shape our future…expressing what it means to be a welcoming community and depicting one’s visions for the future.”
