Columbus will have two Pride celebrations this weekend. This comes a year after a group of activists staged a protest at Stonewall's Pride Parade. They formed a human chain across the parade route to bring awareness to violence and the lack of inclusion of LGBTQ communities of color.
Four activists were arrested, and three were charged with misdemeanors. In the fallout, Stonewall's program coordinator resigned in protest and the executive director retired.
Join us as we discuss minority inclusion within the LGBTQ community ahead of this weekend's pride celebrations in Columbus.
