Pride watch: Baltimore

Baltimore in person pride has been postponed. Dates have yet to be provided, but they may be in August or September. However, it’s more likely to be even later, should COVID-19 cases in the US experience a resurgence from Trump’s incompetence.

Dear Community,

Given the current global pandemic of Covid-19, also known as coronavirus, The Pride Center of Maryland has decided to postpone Baltimore Pride 2020. After speaking with medical experts and Baltimore City officials we feel the safest thing that we can do for our community is to postpone Baltimore Pride.

We are working with Baltimore City to find suitable dates in late August and or September. We are hopeful that things will get better by June given Maryland’s swift response. However, given the number of vulnerable populations that we serve we felt it best to postpone our larger public gathering to a later date in the year.

This is the 45th Anniversary of Baltimore Pride. This event is too important not to have especially during these unprecedented and difficult times. Baltimore Pride can be the light at the end of a tunnel that we can use to unite our communities as we celebrate our lives and struggles.
