The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland (GLCCB) will host a mayoral forum on LGBT issues on March 8. It will take place from 6-9 p.m. at H. Mebane Turner Learning Commons, University of Baltimore, 1415 Maryland Ave. in Baltimore.

With Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake not seeking re-election, more than 30 candidates have filed.

“In collaboration with LGBTQ organizations across the city, we will narrow our concerns into 4-5 focus areas and solicit questions from community members around these areas,” Jabari Lyles, executive director of the GLCCB and board president, told the Blade.

“At our town hall on Wednesday, March 2, community members will be able to vet the questions and hear from different LGBT leaders about issues that affect us. This is an important project for GLCCB and for Baltimore. We are especially excited to do this work because these are the things an LGBTQ community center should be doing — harnessing the collective LGBTQ voice in our city and providing opportunities to unite and empower our community,” Lyles said.
