According to Baltimore Pride, “Each year in June, the GLCCB kicks off Pride Month in celebration of Baltimore’s vibrant LGBTQ/SGL community. Baltimore Pride has grown from a small rally of a dozen activists in 1975, to a cavalcade of diversity showcasing the energy, culture and experience of our SGM community to more than 30,000 revelers each year.”

This year’s theme, “United We Shine”  was selected to promote the idea of “transforming fears into empowerment and embracing community to fight for justice and dignity.”
