The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland (GLCCB) will honor House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi during its inaugural Hometown Hero Awards & Champagne Brunch on Nov. 17 in Baltimore.
Pelosi, the first female Speaker of the House and a daughter of Baltimore, will be recognized with the organization’s lifetime achievement award for her longtime dedication to LGBT rights and her work to fight HIV/AIDS in Congress.
“It is a great privilege for me to come home to Baltimore and celebrate the progress we’ve made in the fight for equality,” Pelosi said.
Also to be honored are Carlton R. Smith, president of Baltimore Black Pride and HIV/AIDS activist, and Catherine Hyde, a longtime transgender coordinator for Howard County PFLAG.
The event will be held in the Calvert Ballroom of the Lord Baltimore Hotel. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit glccb.org/hometownhero.
