Boston Spirit covers annual Thanksgiving event for UMaine’s LGBTQ community

Boston Spirit magazine cited the Maine Campus student newspaper for a report on the University of Maine’s annual Gay Thanksgiving potluck dinner. The event, which is run by UMaine’s LGBTQ Services and Wilde Stein: Queer Straight Alliance, is an annual tradition on campus, especially for students who don’t feel comfortable going home for the holidays, according to the article. “For many LGBT students, holidays can be very difficult times,” Mark Dube, a graduate assistant at the school’s Rainbow Resource Center, told the Maine Campus. “Some go back inside the closet. Some can’t go home. That is why we host events like this. It provides LGBT students a place to have a safe and supportive holiday.”
