There's a new, free website in Maine connecting the community to gay friendly businesses, resources, social events and more.

OutInMaine.com is a new website connecting all of Maine's LGBTQ community with events, places of worship, schools and more and it's all free to use.

The site, created by David Burke, launched yesterday but was more than 3 years in the making. According to an article on newscentermaine.com Burke says "It's not just for the gay community, it's for the state of Maine, so I do very well supporting Maine businesses as well as veterans. It's very important as a veteran myself."

His hopes are for the site to continue to grow and to find more gay friendly businesses to work with.
