Chattahoochee Valley Better Way Foundation hosts inaugural Gay Pride Concert

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The Chattahoochee Valley Better Way Foundation held their inaugural Colgay Pride concert Saturday. The purpose of the event was to raise awareness of HIV across the country and teach self respect and pride to members of the LGBT community. The concert lasted from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. and featured local bands, food vendors, and a message from founder and advocate Jeremy Hobbs.

"This is about being yourself. This is about being true to yourself and also uniting our community as one. That was our biggest thing. There's a lot of segregated events. We want to make sure this event was inviting to the community as a whole," said Jeremy Hobbs.

The organization also announced a new free program for businesses around the Columbus area. It includes a sticker to businesses that show that they serve all customers regardless or race, age, or sexual orientation. For more information on how to get a free sticker for your business you can call 706-580-6239.
