Under the Governor’s Offices of Community Initiatives the Commission on LGBTQIA+ Affairs was created by the 2021 Maryland General Assembly by HB130 and later altered by HB141 during the 2023 legislative session, which renamed the commission to the Commission on LGBTQIA+ Affairs and increased the number of members from 15 to 21. The Commission is mandated to assess the challenges facing LGBTQIA+ communities, study and establish best practices for inclusion, and offer testimony before legislative and administrative bodies.
