Baltimore Pride Day

June 16th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

In a year when Maryland's same-sex couples can, for the first time, legally marry, the organizers of Baltimore Pride 2013 decided some special celebrating was required. A landmark occasion, they reasoned, called for a landmark commemoration. The Baltmore Sun reports the group  organized a wedding for Sunday afternoon. Not just any wedding, mind you, but a group wedding, one in which some 20 gay and lesbian couples will join together and say, "I do." And who better to preside over WeDo Baltimore than Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a longtime friend of the LGBT community who already knows the drill, having performed marriages for several gay couples just after midnight Jan. 1, within minutes of same-sex marriages becoming legal in the state? Similar Gay Pride days and ceremonies are being celebrated in cities across the nation.
