Baltimore Black Pride and the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore (GLCCB) -- two of Baltimore's LGBT advocacy groups -- have formed a partnership to provide joint LGBT outreach and services, they announced in a statement Tuesday.
As part of their collaboration, both groups will assist each other in planning and executing Baltimore Pride, held by the GLCCB in June, and Baltimore Black Pride, which takes place during LGBT History Month on October 7-13.
The groups will work together on sponsorship, fundraising and promoting, as well as booking talent and organizing forums.
"Fostering diversity and unity is extremely important as we move forward into 2014," said BBP board member Kimberli Lagree-Simmons, "and supporting each other will only build more resources for the entire LGBTQ community."
Details about this year's Baltimore Black Pride celebration can be found in the Official Baltimore Black Pride Guide, which will be published through GLCCB's magazine Gay Life. An official kick-off event will be held by both groups in late September.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
