As the new members begin their first terms this month, three longtime members: John Adams, Ralph Moore, and Amy Paine will complete their last terms. John, Ralph, and Amy are champions of OUT Maine’s work and spent the past several years representing OUT Maine at Pride Month, church, and community events. The staff, board, and volunteers greatly appreciate their contributions to the organization and wish them luck in their future endeavors.
OUT Maine has an ambitious goal: to create more welcoming and affirming communities for Maine’s diverse queer youth in all their intersectional identities by changing the very systems that serve them. For more information, please visit www.outmaine.org.
