Stonewall Columbus Presents “LOVE WILL WIN: From Uganda to Columbus” in collaboration with Community Refugee and Immigration Services (CRIS). “LOVE WILL WIN” is created and shared by two Ugandan refugees who escaped religious and governmental persecution of their sexual orientation. Our presenters will share their powerful stories about their journey to the United States in hopes of finding safety, compassion and acceptance.

This year, in lieu of a Pride Grand Marshal, we will recognize a group of brave individuals as our Community Honorees: the LGBTQ refugees who have fled their homelands for fear of persecution or death and now call Columbus home. Through our own refugee program, and in partnership with Community Refugee and Immigration Services (CRIS) and other local non-profits, Stonewall has worked diligently to support LGBTQ new Americans. After landing in Columbus with few or no resources, Stonewall assists through the creation of an Emergency Relief Fund and with connections to our great Central Ohio LGBTQ community.

We invite you to join us for this special event. Our presenters would like to share their stories with as many people as possible, so please help us spread the word! Your attendance can bring attention to needed resources and services that will enable our new community members to prosper in their new home.
