- How do you take pride in yourself?
- How does the legacy of QTIPOC activism affect you today?
WHAT YOU CAN SUBMIT:
- Visual: drawings, paintings, digital designs, renderings, photos, collages, prints, comics
- Written: poems, essays, articles, memoirs, recipes, rituals, spells, lyrics, life hacks, tutorials, advice, slogans

Columbus Community Pride 2018: Back to Our Roots will take place from June 1st–16th, 2018.
With celebratory and educational events ranging from dance parties and documentary showings to invited speakers and art shows, Columbus Community Pride will highlight the vibrant lives of queer, trans, and intersex people of color (QTIPOC) and communities at other intersections of oppression. Community Pride will culminate in the Columbus Community Pride Festival, which will include performance and visual artists, arts & crafts, a community resource fair, and more. We are raising money so that every Community Pride event, including the Festival, will be FREE to attend.
We are committed to bringing Pride back to its radical roots, highlighting movement leaders such as Marsha P. Johnson, QTIPOC history, and the legacy of protest instead of bending to corporate and state interests. Our Pride will not be for police and will be free from the capitalistic influence of corporate sponsorships. Rather, it will be a grassroots effort in support of the seeds of Pride: a community-based coalition which furthers the safety and liberty of the most marginalized in our communities. Pride started as a riot. Let’s uproot the weeds of white supremacy, corporate interest, and collaboration with state-sanctioned violence and return Pride to its original radical legacy. In order to grow the promise of liberation for QTIPOC in Central Ohio and beyond, we must create space outside of white, cis, ableist corporate Prides. It all starts at the roots.

NOTE: The deadline for logo submissions has been extended to April 15th! We encourage all to send in logos ❤ We especially encourage QTIPOC to send in designs!
Help design Columbus Community Pride! We are inviting community members to submit logo designs for our upcoming Columbus Community Pride. Anyone can submit and the artist whose design is chosen will be paid $150!
