Stonewall Columbus Pride March
June 15, 2024
Kickoff at Broad & High Streets

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.

When we last gathered in person, in 2023, we were joined by over 22,000 marchers, representing a vast array of non-profits, activists, community organizations, corporate sponsors, small businesses, and political candidates! The event will end just outside Downtown at Goodale Park for the Pride Festival & Resource Fair.

Join us as we celebrate Pride Month with a journey through the past 50 years of Pride Anthems. From Donna Summer and Queen to George Michael, Erasure, Madonna, Lady Gaga and much more, these essential songs take us from disco to the present day. The story of the fight for LGBTQ+ equality is linked to this music, which evokes the struggles, heartache, and liberation of queer lives then and now. Organized by CAPA.
