In Columbus, diversity thrives. There's a reason Thrillist hailed Columbus as a "queer oasis," recognizing its welcoming atmosphere and vibrant LGBTQIA community. Columbus also achieved a perfect score of 100/100 on the 2023 Municipal Equality Index, showcasing its dedication to equality and inclusivity. And, U.S. News & World Report also lauded Columbus among the top 21 Pride Parades and Celebrations in the U.S., cementing its reputation as a hub for LGBTQIA acceptance and celebration.
