    Probably the best town to be queer in the entire midwest. Always has been.

    They say 230,000 this year.

    It was good weather for a change, which means next weekend's com fest will be a rain out.

    I had several friends going up for the weekend. I think more Cincinnati gay/lesbians go to Columbus Pride than to the local one. But then the Short North is like a safer, slightly smaller version of Boystown in Chicago.

    Btw, sweetheart, Asians aren't second class citizens so why the racist comment, and so vile and degusting that you got the entire three page thread deleted and plus yourself a three or four day RJ 'vacation'.

    True, Riddler78 easily hands it to you when it comes to reason, logic, common sense, and intellect ..... plus of course forum decorum ..... oops I forget temperament, but find some way to debate withOUT hurling racist insults.

    We aren't talking about Asians.. nor are we discussing riddler.

    We are discussing YOUR vote YES on Prop 8 to strip marriage away from LGBT people in Calif. And your glee in advertising that vote!

    Your attempt at deflection isnt cutting it 'oldgeezer'..........

    I haven't been to Chicago for those purposes since the late 70s, but I would argue that the short north is the most desirable party area in the Columbus metro and probably the Midwest with some of the most expensive real estate in Central Ohio. They’ve done a great job with this area.,

    Why not tell 'em all you wanted Santorum for president and see how long you last.

    Had no idea that even this thread was about politics but I welcome your interest in Columbus Ohio from 4,000 or 5,000 miles away.

    It was a great festival this year! icon_biggrin.gif

    I wish everyone here could just be happy for the individual cities hosting their own respective prides and leave this flaming crap at home.

    That's really rare. Last year we had a hell of eyeliner smearing rain. So it probably means big storms for Cum Fest next weekend.

    And two weeks ago was this one, which is my favorite of the festival season.



    Not bad for cow town.

    Fair point, but I thought pride was supposed to be a celebration of being gay and an affirmation of gay rights. The OP has consistently said on these forums how unimportant he believes gay rights to be. Moreover, he revels in his support for people like Santorum, who has never made any secret of his contempt for gay people and gay rights.

    Frankly, I do not know how the hypocrite has the gall to show his face within a hundred miles of a pride event.

    Good luck to the cities.

    And once again, you're full of shit and a hearty fuck you for distorting what I've said. I’ve said that a vote for Santorum in the primaries was a vote for an open convention. In other words, a vote for a chance for someone other than the four Republican (then current) candidates (I don’t even count Ron Paul). A vote to deny Romney the nomination, but given that you’re NOT an American you probably haven’t a clue what I was talking about. So there, you got it this time?

    And I have said repeatedly that my support of gay rights was in the mix with a number of other issues and NOT the only issue for which I vote, due at least in part to filthy fucking cock sucking liars just like you.

    And for your information fuck face, I stayed at all times at least 10 miles away from the festival. Couldn’t do a 100 miles so I hope 10 will do. There, you happy.

    NOW back to the subject of the OP

    Who is also cumming to Com Fest this coming weekend. Same place, just about the same hours, and Friday, Saturday and Sunday. More music orientated and a mix of homos, regulars, kids and adults, and a few topless big, beefy, buxon, butch, dykes in the pond unless they fence it off like they did last year ... I hope they don't. They make most of their money from beer sales so in the finest Columbus tradition, a pretty drunken party for three days.

    Well, it makes a nice change to get something other than a flippant one-liner out of you.

    I wish that I could get to Columbus for its gay pride festivities. I have been told that Columbus is a beautiful, clean, modern city loaded with hot, hunky men. That is in very sharp contrast to both Cincinnati and Dayton which are two depressed, rundown, blue collar armpits that I have travelled through on I-75.

    Very very wrong on the hot and hunky, as it’s a pretty pathetic gay crowd here, but other than that, C-bus is doing quite well in spite of the local gov. Give us a uni government like Indy and Jacksonville and we could really be killin it. The CBD has been transformed over the last few years. Here, democrats and Repubs work pretty well together.
