Pride Parade

Columbus city leaders are launching their annual Pride Week celebrating the LGBTQ community. Unlike previous years, though, this week’s festivities will not include a parade, which has been delayed until October because of the ongoing pandemic.

Megan Bursey noticed something different about Columbus when she visited her girlfriend last December.

“There were just pride flags everywhere and 'Make America Gay Again’ flags," Bursey says. "I was looking for a bicycle and all the bike stores had flags everywhere and it was really nice to see that. People were very openly gay, which was very comforting, too.”
