Each year in June, the GLCCB kicks off Pride Month in celebration of Baltimore’s vibrant Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) community that culminates into Pride Weekend. Baltimore Pride Weekend 2018 consists of a three-day celebration, that kicks off with Twilight on the Terrace on Friday June 15 followed with the block party and legendary parade on Saturday and Sunday’s festival at Druid Hill Park. Baltimore Pride is now in its 43rd year! Last year this celebration was attended by over 30,000 individuals. Want to learn more about Baltimore PRIDE and the GLCCB in general?
