Activist Brian Dolbow has for the second year organized a Pride-related event that will help feed the homeless.
“Homelessness and poverty do not discriminate. Gay, lesbian, transgender or straight—it doesn’t matter.” Dolbow said. “As we begin the Baltimore Pride festivities in June, let’s take a little time to give back to those less fortunate in Baltimore.”
This second annual community outreach event will take place on June 10 from 1-4 p.m. at the Weinberg Housing and Resource Center, 620 Fallsway in Baltimore. It will be hosted by B & Dee’s Baltimore Love.
The free event will consist of a barbeque led by Chef Shorty from Shorty’s Bootleg BBQ. In addition to the food, there will be music (DJ Alex Funk), motivational speakers, vendors, HIV and Hepatitis C testing, haircuts and more.
Those providing support are the Baltimore Eagle, Trinacria Ristorante and Bar, Notre Dame of Maryland University School of Pharmacy, Grand Central, The Drinkery, and the LGBT Health Resource Center of Chase Brexton Health Care and others.
Dolbow says there is a wish list of items including 1,000 hamburgers, 1,000 hot dogs and buns for each as well as fried chicken; side dishes, fresh vegetables; fresh fruit; cookies; cupcakes; and beverages.
“We encourage all of my fellow LGBT community members and leaders to contribute,” says Dolbow. “Even the smallest donation or volunteering of your time can make a huge difference.”
