LGBTQ Commission

About Us 

The Baltimore City Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Commission will advise the Mayor, City Council, and City agencies about issues of concern affecting the LGBTQ community, recommend policies and legislation, bring the LGBTQ communities and the larger Baltimore community together through long-ranged projects, and ensure that City agencies fairly and equitably address issues affecting Baltimore's LGBTQ communities. 

By an Executive Order from Mayor Catherine E. Pugh, the Baltimore City LGBTQ Commission consists of 15 members who shall be residents of Baltimore City. All members shall be selected from the Baltimore LGBTQ community and its allies and should reflect the diversity of the community, including orientation, race, age, and socio-economic status. Twelve members are appointed directly by the Mayor and three are recommended by the City Council President.
