Protestors Greet Stonewall Columbus' Announcement Of New Community Center

A local LGBTQ-rights group is attempting to answer criticism about its lack of diversity. Stonewall Columbus yesterday unveiled plans to build a community center at Fourth and High streets and invited residents to sign a steel beam for the building.  Protesters showed up at the event to write profanity-laced and anti-police messages, claiming Stonewall leaders failed to defend four black protesters who were arrested during the Pride Parade earlier this year.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
