Maine, USA: Bishop Gene Robinson Backs Marriage Equality Effort

Monday, June 4th, 2012

Gene Robinson, the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church, married his longtime partner on New Year’s Day 2010 — the day same-sex marriage became legal in his home state of New Hampshire. Robinson hopes Maine voters follow in its neighbor’s footsteps and legalize same-sex marriage in a ballot proposal in November.

Robinson is coming to Maine on behalf of the campaign seeking to legalize gay marriage, appearing at three screenings of a film about his life and his struggles to be accepted within the Anglican church.

Maine is the second state where Robinson is appearing at showings of “Love Free or Die” for campaigns connected to gay marriage. He is confident the results in Maine will be different from those in North Carolina, where he appeared at screenings of the film a few weeks ahead of last month’s election in which that state’s voters approved a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and woman.
