Gay Columbus: Pride year 'round

As the 15th largest city in the nation, Columbus is home to a vibrant gay community, much of which congregate in the Short North and Clintonville neighborhoods. The Short North has a number of gay pubs, art galleries, popular gay and lesbian center, nightclubs, coffee shops and an annual gay and lesbian theater festival in September.

It's gay pride all year round with businesses vying for the gay dollar by donning the famous rainbow flag. Clintonville is more of the lesbian hangout. This part of Ohio ranks among the highest per capita donations to LBGT political causes in the USA. Way to put your money where your heart is, Columbus.
