The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland (GLCCB) firmed up the dates for Baltimore Pride—an enterprise run by the GLCCB.  This year’s Baltimore Pride will take place on Father’s Day weekend, June 13-15.

The Pride Parade and Block Party will take place on Saturday, June 14, with the Pride Festival taking place on Sunday, June 15. The parade route will begin at the intersection of Eager and Charles streets and continue on Charles Street up to Mount Royal Avenue. All Pride weekend events will then take place at Mount Royal Avenue and Cathedral St. (No events will take place in Druid Hill Park, as in years past).

Twilight on the Terrace, the annual fundraiser for the GLCCB, will take place on June 13 at Gertrude’s restaurant at the Baltimore Museum of Art.

The GLCCB had originally tapped June 21-22 for the main Pride events, but permitting issues forced the organization to revert to the second weekend in June.  This will mark the first time in more than a decade that the venue has shifted from Eager and Charles Streets for the Block Party on Saturday and from Druid Hill Park for the Sunday festival.

“We apologize for any confusion that this may have caused and are working diligently with Baltimore City officials to make this year’s event a success,” said Kelly Neel, GLCCB interim director in a statement. For more information, visit baltimorepride.org.
