Under the Governor’s Offices of Community Initiatives the Commission on LGBTQ Affairs was created by the 2021 Maryland General Assembly by HB130. The commission reflects the gender, racial, ethnic and geographic diversity of Maryland. Members are required to know the issues facing the LGBTQ community and advocate for solutions to problems facing the community. The 2023 Maryland General Assembly with HB141 renames the commission to the Commission on LGBTQIA+ Affairs and increases the number of members from 15 to 21. This will take effect on, October 1, 2023. Learn more
