The Pride Center of Maryland (PCOM) announces they will kick-off the highly anticipated Baltimore Pride Festival on the weekend of June 18th, 2021. The 45th annual event will produce an epic and innovative Pride Celebration that will incorporate virtual and intimate in-person experiences to make Baltimore proud.

The Baltimore Pride Festival will educate, celebrate, and affirm a diverse sexual and gender minority (SGM) community of thousands, with city and state civic leaders, local and national entertainers, artists, and notables from Baltimore and surrounding areas.

This year’s theme is: You Matter, Love Matters, Pride Matters, a unique play on the word “matter” as it is recognized in chemistry.

Pride organizers and PCOM personnel are available for interviews by the media.
