Louise Kelley and Richard Oloiza, author and editor of “LGBT Baltimore,” will discuss the development of the Baltimore LGBT community from the 1960s with photos and documents from university and organizational documents and personal collections. The event, themed Baltimore History Evening, will take place on April 21 at 7 p.m. at the Baltimore City Historical Society and Village Learning Center, 2521 St. Paul St., Baltimore.
The University of Baltimore, which hosted a celebration of the recently published “LGBT Baltimore,” indicated in a statement:
“‘LGBT Baltimore’ is the result of an emerging archival effort to preserve and catalog the history of gay culture in the city…For the nearby Mt. Vernon neighborhood, a Baltimore cultural landmark with deep roots in the city’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender culture, the preservation of these materials signifies an important contribution to sustaining the heritage of the community.”
