Equality for All Means All

Support and allyship for the LGBTQIA+ community has been an ongoing mission in Columbus for several decades. Starting with an ordinance in 1984 banning bar employers from discriminating based on sexual orientation to now—where LGBTQIA+ businesses are at the center of making our city thrive. 

Pride is more than a parade here. Experience Columbus is a member of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) and Columbus has proven it’s a city that’s great for members of the LGBTQIA+ community to visit, and even better to call home. To live, work, and raise a family in a welcoming and affirming neighborhood—that is our passion and our purpose.

Browse through all our resources, sign up for the newsletter, and check out upcoming events below.

To find additional resources and programs to get involved in, visit Stonewall Columbus, an organization that serves Central Ohio's LGBTQIA+ community by providing a community center and offering programming and services that enhance the well-being and visibility of our diverse community through discovery, affirmation and celebration.
