Kelly Neel, executive director of the Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore, announced following the conclusion of the Baltimore Pride celebrations on June 14-15, the organization will seek input from the community in an effort to improve the annual event in future years.
“Organizing Baltimore Pride is an around-the-year undertaking,” explained Neel in a statement. “In an effort to engage and inform the Baltimore LGBT community, The GLCCB and its Baltimore Pride committee will host a series of Pride town hall meetings in July to wrap up this year’s event, recruit members for next year’s Pride organizing committee and discuss improvements for Baltimore Pride 2015. Dates and locations for our Pride Town Hall meetings are being finalized.”
After being situated in Mount Vernon for the Saturday block party and Druid Hill Park for the Sunday festival, the GLCCB, which has operated Pride for more than 35 years, changed venues this year. Both days’ events took place in the Mount Royal area, several blocks north of the previous location and attempted to control drinking with the establishment of two beer gardens.
