This weekend Baltimore celebrates LGBT Pride with a parade, block party, food, music, and more. Mimi Demissew, executive co-director of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland, and co-chair of Baltimore Pride, tells us what this event means to her.
Thousands enjoyed Pride Unleashed, Baltimore’s LGBTQ celebration in Station North last Saturday and the customary festival in Druid Hill Park on Sunday. Pride is run by the GLBT Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland (GLCCB).
Recording the Rainbow Revolution: As gay bars in Baltimore shut their doors, activists work to document LGBTQ history
The Hippo opened in the summer of 1972, and in the ensuing years, the bar has been the setting for Pride block parties, for political organizing, for first kisses and last breakups. Early fundraisers for AIDS were held here, and the bar’s regular Gay Bingo nights and annual 12 Days of Christmas parties have raised money for a variety of nonprofits.
