BISHOP GENE ROBINSON
Bishop Gene Robinson is the first openly gay person to be elected as a bishop in the Episcopal Church. Robinson was elected Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire in June 2003, after serving for nearly 18 years a Canon to the Ordinary. Bishop Robinson married his partner of 24 years on January 1, 2010, their first day it was legal to do so in New Hampshire.
Bishop Robinson will be in Maine to attend three screenings of the documentary "Love Free or Die." The screenings are being organized by Mainers United for Marriage, the campaign supporting a "Yes" vote in November on a ballot initiative that would allow same-sex couples to receive a marriage license in Maine.
The screenings will be followed by a question and answer period with Bishop Robinson. All the screenings are free and open to the public.
