Parade Step Off @ 10:30AM
The first Pride march in Columbus, Ohio was held in June 1981. Only 200 people were in attendance, and some even wore bags over their heads to conceal their identities. This year, we celebrate the 35th Year of PRIDE in Columbus.
In 2015, we were joined by over 200 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of non-profits, community organizations, corporate sponsors, small businesses, political candidates and activists! Despite the rain, thousands of people turned out to show their support for their local LGBTQ community. Help us celebrate and recognize our 35th PRIDE by joining today!
