Meet the Editor
Lauren Cohen is the digital senior editor at Baltimore, where she covers food, events, lifestyle, and community news. A Baltimore native and recent Towson University grad, she loves taking advantage of all that Charm City has to offer. She’s also a huge fan of spicy cocktails and ‘90s cover bands.
Throughout its 43-year lifetime, the Mt. Vernon club was known as a welcoming drag and karaoke spot, a place to come together during the AIDS crisis, and a site to celebrate the advances in gay rights.
Despite the city's reputation as being built by and for ship-builders, dockworkers, and fishermen, many of its current residents don’t get out on the water. For 25 years, the club has been working to change that.
