Baltimore’s Gay Friendly Neighborhoods

Just north of downtown rests the city's cultural heart, Mount Vernon, beautiful, colorful, lively, and once home to Baltimore's Gilded Age elite.

In many ways, Mt. Vernon is also the center of gay-life and gay celebration in Baltimore. Mount Vernon hosts the annual Pride Parade and Block Party for Baltimore, and the city’s best gay clubs are on historic Charles Street in the heart of the neighborhood.Gay

Enjoy dining from Afghan to Thai and everything that falls in between. Fill your cultural needs with The Walters Art Museum, the Baltimore Symphony, CENTERSTAGE and The Lyric.
