The Baltimore Pride Celebration will feature something a little different at next month's Pride Festival. In recognition of her support for gay rights, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will officiate a mass wedding for same-sex couples during the festival, reports the Associated Press.

Rawlings-Blake officiated same-sex weddings at Baltimore's City Hall when they became legal Jan. 1.

The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland organizes the Pride Festival, and will hold the mass wedding at Druid Hill Park on June 16.

Organizers say they've heard from same-sex couples from around the country that are interested in participating.
