The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland announced new, expanded dates for Baltimore Pride 2014. The festivities will take place next June 12-22.
The GLCCB, which has operated Baltimore Pride for more than 30 years, has limited the celebration to essentially two days—the parade-block party on Saturday and the festival at Druid Hill Park on Sunday—with a fundraiser held the Friday before. Next year, there will be “many new aspects to Baltimore Pride, including pre-Pride events such as Pride with the Orioles,” according to GLCCB executive director Matt Thorn.
The first Baltimore Pride 2014 planning meeting will be Monday at 6:30 p.m. and the GLCCB encourages the community to attend. The meeting will take place at the GLCCB’s current headquarters at 241 W. Chase St. in Baltimore.
Creative community members are also encouraged to participate by helping the Center design a new Baltimore Pride logo. Design submissions for the Pride Logo Contest will be accepted through Sept. 30, 2013, and the winner will be announced later this fall. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
