As part of the Union Collective Pride Day on June 18, 2022, Unmatched Athlete, Movement Hampden, Union Craft Brewing, and the Stoop join the manufacturers at Union Collective for an all-day Pride celebration from 11 am throughout the evening. The day portion invites LGBTQ+ youth to free climbing, corn hole, arts and crafts at the Charmery, and other activities, including a guest appearance from Poe from the Ravens.  The theme of the day creates supportive spaces for BIPOC and LGBTQ+ people in leadership positions and in sports. Come meet affirming community partners and sponsors, then shop-and-dine at the collective throughout the day. Buy a drink from Vent Coffee, Union Craft Brewing, Wine Collective, or Baltimore Spirits Co Cocktail Gallery; enjoy a treat from the Charmery or a bite from Well Crafted Kitchen. Sign up to the day portion at

At 5:30pm in the evening, you are invited to a “Second Stoop” Storytelling Installment at Movement, then a drag show at 8pm at Union. FREE! The Stoop Storytelling theme is “Moving with Pride: Stories about finding yourself and community in movement, sport and the outdoors.” This event is FREE and “Second Stoop” means an open mic format – meaning anyone can come put their name in to share your own true, personal “Movement” story. Reserve a seat to ensure you get a seat. Sold out? There is plenty of standing room and floor seating on Movement’s padded flooring. Drag performances will be held at Union Craft Brewing at 8pm, with a slate of performers to be announced shortly, as well as this year’s newly-crowned Drag Queen and Drag King.

Questions can be addressed to or call (301) 989-1586. Looking for more Baltimore Pride festivities? The following Saturday, June 25, you are invited to Baltimore Pride in the Park at Druid Hill Park where Unmatched Athlete is co-partnering to provide the festival’s first sports field day, with an afternoon of free activities for all ages. While you enjoy music from the main stage, participate in kids soccer, football toss, and more.
