We’d like to send heartfelt thanks to Wendilee Heath O’Brien, who has brought color and creativity to OUT Maine’s virtual youth programs with her art workshops. Wendilee says, “Since I have spent much of my adult life with young people and since my sons have committed time and energy to the LGTBQ+ community, OUT Maine provides me with an excellent place to be involved in whatever way I can, especially sharing what I have learned about ‘visual’ expression.”

Thank you, Wendilee, for your dedication to Maine’s LGBTQ+ youth! You can see Wendilee’s beautiful paintings on her website: https://www.whopaints.com/.
