Baltimore GLBT community center to move to Charles Village

The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland announced Friday it will move from its long-time home in Mount Vernon to Charles Village.

The center will take over the third floor of 2530 North Charles Street, which will provide a larger, upgraded space for Baltimore's LGBTQ community to gather and receive services, the organization said Friday.

"We have outgrown the Waxter Center," said GLCCB President and Acting Director Jabari Lyles in a news release. "Aside from moving away from the many physical limitations of our current space, we are excited to begin a new chapter as a stronger, smarter organization on which our community can rely."

The new space features community rooms and offices, upgraded amenities and parking, the organization said.

The GLCCB moved to its current location at 1000 Cathedral Street in 2012. It is scheduled to move into its new space Aug. 6.

The GLCCB is one of the longest-running LGBTQ community centers in the United States, serving the community since 1977, the organization said. GLCCB produces the Baltimore Pride celebration, an event that draws nearly 50,000 community members and allies in celebration of LGBT pride. The event will be held this weekend.
