COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Hundreds of supporters of the LGBT community came out to the 18th Annual Columbus LGBT Pride Festival in Columbus.

This year’s event filled with various drag performances, bouncy houses for the kids, and food was held Saturday afternoon at Flat Rock Park.

Organizer Christopher Carter says, “I think Columbus a better community if we all are ourselves so I am going to change things here. Anybody can be gay in a big city, it takes courage to be gay in a small town.”

Several events such as the Celebrity Charity Car Wash and the Shop for a Cause were held in August to raise money for the annual festival. Planning for next year's festival is already in the works.
