Join the love at its first annual Queer Love Summer Cookout on Saturday, August 26th, from noon to 4 pm at the Chinese Pavilion in Druid Hill Park. Sponsored by the Baltimore Trans Alliance, TransBaltimore, and Sista’s of the T, the cookout will feature live music, good food, a welcoming environment, and games and prizes. It will feature music by performers including Monica Stevens, Coco Nicole, Tyger Black St. James, Chaz Monroe, and DJ Sean Smallwood.

“BTA is really excited to co-host this event,” said the group’s Key’Ashia Tucker. “Too often our community is brought together by differences that make us different from others, but we are a family! Let’s come together to celebrate who we are, to celebrate each other.”
