A brief background

Ohio Gay Pride is a United Family that colors outside of the lines to be who we are with integrity and fairness so that Royalty can be Born, not Chosen.

The primary goal of the Ohio Gay Pride Pageantry system is to positively promote the unity amongst the LGBT Community through Pageantry and Entertainment. Ohio Gay Pride Pageantry was the long standing dream of Donnie Miller to create a pageantry system that positively promotes our community and is administered in a way which is fair and and ethical to all involved.
