About

We are a civil rights group consisting of LGBTQ2S+ & Allies in Eastern Maine/Passamaquoddy Territory.

In non-covid times The Downeast Rainbow Alliance meets every 4-8 weeks year-round and we rotate between University of Maine at Machias and Eastport Health Care. During covid times we’ve been ZOOMING on Thursday evenings at 6:30. Meeting times are announced on our Programs Page.

The Downeast Rainbow Alliance (DRA) began in 2013 as the “GSTA Community Circle” with a goal to support GSTA clubs in area high schools. The mission since has expanded and now works towards creating an environment where everyone can thrive as their authentic self in Washington County. The DRA meetings are used to discuss current events, engage statewide organizations and support community progress.

In 2020 the DRA began expanding their efforts by initiating “The Downeast Traveling Rainbow” a grant funded project to increase Q+ cultural competency in Washington County/Passamaquoddy Territory.
