2017 COLUMBUS GEORGIA LGBT PRIDE FESTIVAL

JUNE 3rd 1100-1200 CENTER BLOCK BROADWAY

This year we have some BIG NAMES in LGBT Equality slotted to speak and take part in our BIG EVENT including special guest KIA COMEDY. We will hear from the office of the Mayor of Columbus Georgia, City Councilors, LGBT Organizations, Health Organizations, Special BIG NAME Speakers and many more. Our Entertainment will include Live Music, Special Performances including Mister Daytona Beach Gay Pride Male Illusionist Rey Romeo, Dance, Comedy, Poetry and more all being led by DJ CALVIN Productions. The Official 2017 COLUMBUS GEORGIA LGBT PRIDE MONTH PROCLAMATION READING will be held as well. Our day event and schedule is about advocacy, education, entertainment and informing our public and the citizens here what must be done to ensure we overcome prejudice and discrimination in any form. Then at 8 pm it’s time to party. We will hold the first ever AFTERHOURS Pride Show, the first ever Drag Show on Broadway. Over the past four years, COLGAY Pride helped stopped SB 129 RFRA; Worked Non-Stop to oppose and Garner a Veto from Republican Governor Nathan Deal on HB 757; Advocated and celebrated Nation Wide Marriage Equality, Hosted the First Ever Columbus Equality for All Candidate Forum, Created LGBT, Family & Friends Support Groups, Created Columbus first LGBT Prom, hosted and organized Columbus New Equality for All Town Hall meetings and we are only just getting started and last year held a vigil for our fallen friends in Orlando. The road to TOTAL EQUALITY is challenging, long and arduous but we are pushing forward and making real change happen here in Columbus and abroad. We as LGBT Americans are now living in Uncertain Times with the new leadership from President Donald Trump. But know, Colgay Pride will not waiver. We will continue our fight and continue winning the war for total Equality for all our citizens. This year the 2017 Colgay Pride festival theme is: KEEP HOPE ALIVE

Statement to Media From Jeremy Hobbs Director Colgay Pride: We still have much work to be done here in Columbus Georgia. In order for us to ensure we do become an Inviting Destination for people looking for a good city, a home, a job and also be a destination for business owner looking for a new spot to open up and provide services as well as jobs…WE MUST INCREASE OUR HRC MEI INDEX SCORE. Right now the city of Columbus Georgia has a score of 38 of 100. This is not an inviting score. I have included the information about Columbus Georgia and its rating and I have attached a copy.
