PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- In just 5 months voters in Maine will once again take on the question of marriage equality, supporters are hoping for a different turn out this time around.
The annual gay pride parade was held Saturday in Portland, where Maine remains the last New England state not allowing gay marriage or civil unions.
While politics were in the air, the main message of the event is one of celebration for the LGBT community and its supporters.
Those supporters range from the young to the young at heart, along with members of a number of different churches, and well-known political figures like former governor, John Baldacci.
If Mainers do approve gay marriage this fall, the state will be the first to do so by a popular vote.
