Northern Maine Pagan Pride Day 2013 will be held on September 7, 2013 at Collins Pond Park on Roberts St. in Caribou, Maine, from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. People of all ages and spiritual backgrounds are welcome. The event will include information booths, vendors and other activities celebrating the Autumn Equinox, a time of thanksgiving in many Pagan traditions. An item of clothing or non-perishable food will be accepted as admission and donated to local charities.
The International Pagan Pride Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of prejudice and religious discrimination through education, activism, charity and community. Pagan Pride celebrations are held annually around the world. The food drive gives participants a way to share with those who are less fortunate while making a positive statement about Paganism. For decades Pagans have been wrongly accused of practicing devil worship and performing "black magic.” In reality most Pagans enjoy a religion emphasizing respect for nature, humanity, and oneself. Modern Paganism, or Neo-Paganism, is a growing religious movement based on combinations of ancient polytheism, modern eco-spirituality, and reverence for the Divine as both masculine and feminine.
