Join TransOhio at Columbus’ Spirit Day and Candlelight Vigil

Be a Part of Spirit Day in Columbus and Attend the Candlelight Vigil

Stonewall Columbus will hold a candlelight vigil on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the Gazebo at Goodale Park, 120 W. Goodale Street, in Columbus, Ohio. This event coincides with the newly created “Spirit Day”
which recognizes the loss of lives to suicide directly related to anti-gay bullying.

Purple in the LGBT rainbow flag represents “Spirit.” Come and join us as we show the spirit of the Columbus LGBT community. We will stand together to encourage people who are being bullied and harassed because they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or
transgender to speak out and get help.

A short program will be held with speakers from our community and performances by Vox from the Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus and Unecc. Resource materials will be on hand for distribution and a limited number of candles and “Spirit Day” purple ribbons will
be available at the park.

“It is very difficult for those who are suffering to reach out,” said Karla Rothan, Executive Director of Stonewall Columbus. “By holding this public event, it is our hope that we will encourage people who are being bullied and harassed because they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender to speak out and get help.”

Stonewall Columbus serves the Central Ohio LGBT community by providing a community center and offering programming and services that enhance the well-being and visibility of our diverse community through discovery, affirmation and celebration.

For more information, please contact Karla Rothan, Executive Director of Stonewall Columbus, at 614-930-2261 or email her krothan@stonewallcolumbus.org.

Horses each play an important role in their herd. They are adept at self-expression and need individuality among members. Practice being proud of yourself and proud of others. Discover how to be your own person while living cooperatively with others. Horses are masters of honest and unbiased feedback and help ensure that we are communicating effectively.
