On January 1, same-sex marriages became legal in the state of Maryland.

Just moments after the new law went into effect, the mayor officiated at the weddings of seven same-sex couples.

This weekend’s festival features a parade and block party to be held in Mount Vernon.

Meanwhile, Commissioner Anthony Batts this weekend announced that the Baltimore Police Department has created a task force to address the issues facing the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered communities.
