Gay Life Volume 33, Number 2
Hello Gay Life readers! My name is Maggie Beetz and I am Gay Life’s new editor. I’m very excited to join the GLCCB team, and I look forward to working with our fantastic crew of writers and photographers to bring you a quality bi-weekly paper.
Some background: I’ve been a professional writer and editor for about 10 years. In this time, I’ve written for a variety of publications, companies, and clients. I grew up in Baltimore, not far from the old Memorial Stadium, and have lived all over the city from Original Northwood to Roland Park, and from Federal Hill to Hampden.
I spent much of my childhood in the very neighborhood I’m now employed; as a Grace & St. Peter’s school student, regular fieldtrips involved walking to the Meyerhoff and the Walters. My earliest memories include lemon sticks at the Flower Mart and storytelling at the Enoch Pratt Free Library. This very neighborhood helped to shape the girl who went on to attend Friends School of Baltimore, Northeastern University in Boston, and Towson University’s Graduate School.
Now I am thrilled to be back in the Mt. Vernon cultural district, working in the GLCCB building, and editing this fine newspaper. I’m especially grateful to be able to combine two of my passions- writing and my hometown. As a long-time LGBT ally, it is sincerely a joy to be here, and I hope that together we can make Baltimore an even better place for the community.
Maggie Beetz, Editor
