The mission of columbus urban pride is to provide a safe space for the celebration of racial diversity while empowering, building community and providing resources within LGBTQ communities in Greater Columbus.
We accomplish our mission by using four key tenants:
A strong, stable, and visible community where every person feels like they belong.
Columbus Urban Pride was founded in 2012 by a small group of local community leaders in Columbus, Ohio who assembled to organize efforts around creating culturally competent social and educational events for LGBTQ people of color during Columbus Pride in June.
As efforts grew CUP formed a promotional partnership with Stonewall Columbus and solidified it's mission, vision and purpose. Now the organization seeks to provide a safe space for celebration of racial diversity within the LGBTQ community welcome to all people throughout the year.
