The idea that this history should be preserved is, though, itself a surprisingly new idea. Researchers will find a small list of articles on LGBTQ history in Baltimore, and there is a book from 1988 called "And Justice For All" featuring essays by Baltimoreans who attended the 1987 LGBT March on Washington—but you'll have to dig through the still-being-organized GLCCB archives to find the one copy publicly available. Scholars and interested parties can look forward to this August when Louise Kelley's new book, "LGBT Baltimore," will be out from Arcadia Publishing. Kelley's history as an organizer stretches back to 1975. Among her many projects: She was a founder and editor of the Baltimore Gay Paper of GLCCB, wrote for Women's Express, and was a board member of the Chase Brexton clinic, one of the first volunteer-run gay health clinics in the country. She helped coordinate women's activities for the GLCCB, was a chair of Pride, and worked with the Schmoke administration's Task Force on Gay and Lesbian Issues. Her latest book will share the history of this work in the larger context of Baltimore's LGBT history. And there's a long history here—Baltimore's first Pride rally, held in 1975; the founding of Baltimore's chapter of ACT UP by John Stuban in 1987; the publishing home of the feminist journal Women: A Journal of Liberation, a globally circulated journal that shared significant lesbian content; and so, so many more stories to tell.
