Baltimore Pride is The PRIDE Center of Maryland’s largest fundraising event each year. The PRIDE Center uses all proceeds generated from Baltimore Pride to help over 800 SGM (sexual & gender minority) individuals each month.
Each year in June, PCOM kicks off Pride Month in celebration of Baltimore’s vibrant SGL community. Baltimore Pride has grown from a small rally of a dozen activists in 1975, to a cavalcade of diversity showcasing the energy, culture and experience of our SGM community to more than 30,000 revelers each year.
Celebrating the long history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer dignity, Baltimore Pride raises the visibility of the SGM community and honors the freedom of all people to proudly express their sexual and gender identities.
The PRIDE Center of Maryland (or, the Center) seeks to achieve equality, understanding, and respect for the diversity of the greater Baltimore SGM community while also providing quality support services, facilities, and professional resources for the development and well-being of individuals and groups.
