Pride Watch: Columbus

The first Columbus PRIDE march in 1982 was just around 200 people; today the Stonewall Columbus Pride Festival and March welcome over 700,000 visitors to Columbus and the Central Ohio region. For 42 years Stonewall Columbus has served the Central Ohio community working to uplift LGBTQ+ identities. Stonewall’s annual PRIDE Festival and March serve as the organization’s largest annual fundraiser that secures the needed funds to support Stonewall’s community programs and annual operations. The Stonewall Columbus Pride March kicks off at 10:30am on June 15. The Pride Festival is on both June 14 (4pm-10pm) and June 15 (11am-8pm).
