Harvey Milk once said, “All young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential.” The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center of Central Maryland (GLCCB), celebrating its 40th anniversary, has acted as this haven for many of Baltimore’s residents. GLCCB co-founder and the Center’s first president, Paulette Young, recently sat down with Baltimore OUTloud to chat about her role as a Baltimore LGBT pioneer and what Pride means to her.

Leatherman Rodney Burger

Do you remember the Deer Park Lodge? The Renegade in Rehoboth? The NoMad bar between OC and Rehoboth? The fried chicken at the Gallery? Mr. Marcus? Rodney Burger does! I recently had the pleasure of talking with Rodney under the guise of using the interview to teach someone how to do a short oral history. And now I am going to tell you a bit about the amazing leatherman who keeps the entire Mid-Atlantic region up to date about the goings on in our community.

Daniel Radcliffe once said, “Any actor worth their salt wants to show as much versatility as they can.” Actor and model Nic Detorie embodies this sentiment.

Living & Loving through Adversity

A look at Baltimore power-couple Ronald Zimmerman and Steve Jackson, Part 3

June 14th is Flag Day commemorating the adoption of the flag of the U.S. by the Second Continental Congress on that day in 1777, and it is also the birthday of the U.S. Army. But that was not at the top of Ron Zimmerman and Steve Jackson’s agenda on Saturday, June 14th, 2014 after a hectic day at Weichert’s Realtors, picking up their cats, Nick and Nora, from the vet, and preparing to go to the Rowan Tree to participate in the festivities there.
