(NECN/WMUR: Portland, Maine) - Advocates of same-sex marriage marched through the streets of Portland, Maine on Saturday for the annual gay pride parade -- the first since passing a gay marriage law last month. Participants carried a 900-foot long rainbow flag that stretched for several city blocks. The man who sponsored Maine's gay marriage law, Senator Dennis Damon, was the master of ceremonies. "It isn't just the gay. Lesbian, bisexual, transgender community, it's our community as a whole. And that's what I hope that Maine will look onto, will grab onto and continue to move forward with," Sen. Dennis Damon said. Last month, Maine became the fifth state to allow gay marriage. Since then, New Hampshire adopted its own a gay marriage law. <i>Video courtesy of WMUR</i>
