Stonewall Columbus – the leading visionary, inclusive, and fun-spirited GLBT organization in Central Ohio – sets the pace for increasing the visibility and acceptance of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LBGT) community. We continue to be the driving force on LGBT issues and our Center is the first stop for many in the GLBT and allied community.
In response to community need, Stonewall routinely adds programs to our growing roster, facilitates ever-increasing numbers visiting the Center, increases visibility for other agencies, and brings new and innovative perspectives to our service delivery. It is our intent to continually expand programming so that community members seeking a variety of services and activities – in addition to the base services and ongoing support groups we offer – can find ways to connect with others in a safe, comfortable and culturally enriching environment.
As the leading organization on LGBT issues in the Central Ohio area, we have made countless strides in educating the larger community, increasing social awareness, and collaborating on political advocacy by providing stronger programs, services, and alternative social activities. As we move towards an exciting milestone of celebrating 32 years in the community, we are building on past accomplishments, developing sustainable systems and growth processes and focusing on strengthening not only our agency, but the Central Ohio LGBT and allied community by enhancing our Community Center, The Center on High.
Stonewall Columbus exists because of our strong partnerships with other agencies, our tireless supporters, and the many volunteers and community members that generously give of their time, talents, and support. We look forward to partnering with our Columbus community so that we may jointly improve the lives of those we serve.
Stonewall Columbus continues to lead the fight in Central Ohio for equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals. The Board and staff accomplish this through implementing Stonewall’s strategic plan and concentrating on its brand elements of being visionary, inclusive, and fun-spirited. Through compassionate and intelligent planning, resource prioritization, and increased service delivery, Stonewall has consistently succeeded in reaching greater numbers of the LGBT and allied community in Central Ohio.
