LGBT Vacation Attractions & Things to Do

When you arrive in Baltimore, stop into the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland (GLCCB) to learn about local events and helpful organizations, peruse its library and local LGBT artwork, and pick up the latest copy of Baltimore Out Loud, the local LGBT newspaper, to see what’s going on during your visit.

In the heart of the city, the Mount Vernon neighborhood is the center of Baltimore’s LGBT community. Numerous LGBT-owned businesses and organizations can be found along Charles Street north of the Washington Monument. A walk from the Inner Harbor will immerse you in the city’s charming blocks of historic homes and shops along the way.

John Waters fans and cinema aficionados will enjoy a divine pilgrimage through the filmmaker’s hometown, where he still maintains a residence. Head to The Avenue along 36th Street in the Hampden neighborhood, where Hairspray and Pecker were filmed, and where Café Hon still epitomizes Waters’ kitschy Baltimore. Stop into Atomic Books where the artist shops and receives his fan mail. True die-hards can visit Divine’s gravesite in Prospect Hill Cemetery in Towson. Or, you can view the star in all her glory at the American Visionary Museum, which boasts a larger-than-life statue of Baltimore’s most famous diva. Don’t miss exploring additional listings of John Waters’ favorite hometown shops, restaurants and attractions.
