The Lady Lisa Drag Stage:
GLCCB Baltimore Pride 2015
The mission of the GLCCB is to be a catalyst for uniting and empowering sexual and gender minorities in Baltimore and Maryland, and to advocate for a better quality of life for the entire community.
The Lady Lisa Drag Stage (LLDS) has been an integral part of the Pride festival for many years. The stage got its name from a wonderful person who decided to battle fate to keep this tradition alive—Miss Club Phoenix 2005, Lady Lisa.
Lady Lisa (born Alicia Wright) was a biological self-identified heterosexual female. An ally of the LGBTQ community, she was a longtime volunteer for the GLCCB’s Pride events and supported many other LGBT events and functions.
After funding was cut for this performance outlet, Lady Lisa took it upon herself to keep it going. Sadly, on September 10, 2010, we unexpectedly lost this ally to a massive heart attack, just a few short months after undertaking the task of raising funds and producing the Drag Stage at Pride in 2010.
The Leather Heart Foundation:
Mark “Spanky” Bialous Relief Fund
The Leather Heart Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization established in 2009 whose mission is to provide charitable assistance in times of financial hardship to individuals of all sexual orientations in the Leather, BDSM, M/s and fetish communities.
Project REAL (Asbury Park LGTBQ Youth Center):
Mark “Spanky” Bialous Fund
Project R.E.A.L. (Real Empowerment on All Levels) is a safe-space for LGBT young adults to relax, meet, and support each other within the community.
Project R.E.A.L. is a program of the Prevention Resource Network. This will be a safe-space where young adults ages 13-24 can come together and be themselves without risk of judgment. In this space, these young adults can form both social and support networks for issues that pertain to them.
The Prevention Resource Network (PRN) is a program of the Visiting Nurse Association of Central Jersey, Inc, (VNACJ) and is funded by a grant from the Department of HIV, STD and TB Services. The goal of PRN is to assist HIV negative persons and Persons Living with HIV/AIDS who are at high risk for HIV transmission or acquisition to reduce risk behaviors and address psychosocial and medical needs to improve overall health outcomes.
