“We are thrilled to continue our Family Pride Network programming by celebrating Pride with LGBTQ+ parents as well as parents with LGBTQ+ children.” said Densil Porteous, Executive Director of Stonewall Columbus. “While keeping safety and comfort of all guests in mind, we are thankful to have great partners like Land Grant open up their space for this celebration and to partner again with Nina West to celebrate everyone that makes up our LGBTQ+ community.”
The Family Pride Event will be hosted Saturday, June 26 from 9 a.m. to noon outdoors in Land-Grant’s Beer Garden, located in East Franklinton. Stonewall Columbus will be selling limited table reservations, with all proceeds benefiting their Family Pride Network program.
“We love that our Beer Garden has evolved into a gathering place for the Columbus community and represents our brewery’s ‘All Welcome’ mentality,” said Meredith Miles, Land-Grant’s Director of Communications. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to partner with Stonewall Columbus to host an event that creates a space for families to safely come together to celebrate PRIDE, and we’re thrilled to welcome the iconic Nina West to our stage.”
Nina West, beloved Columbus drag queen and RuPaul’s Drag Race alum, released a children’s EP in 2019 called “Drag is Magic” – featuring a collection of songs created for kids about love, acceptance and the art of drag. In addition to performing several of these kid-friendly singalongs, West will also host a “Story Time with Nina” segment, reading children’s stories to the crowd during the Family Pride Event.
