Local News

Columbus GA. (WRBL) – It’s Pride month and Colgay Pride, a community LGBT organization, will be creating spaces to celebrate and remember those that sacrificed for the local queer community.

The theme for this year’s pride celebration is, “WE ARE ALL HUMAN….Solidarity and Recognizing how we are alike instead of how we are different.” 

“It’s just simply because we are all one thing. Human,” said Jeremy Hobbs Director of Colgay Pride. “Whether we’re gay, straight, Black, white, male, or female, able, or disabled. We can all come to the table with one factor, we are human. Putting difference aside and start the conversation we can start building a better tomorrow and ending the division throughout our nation.”
