Gay Pride Dayton 2016

Just an hour north of Cincinnati and about 75 minutes west of Columbus, the city of Dayton has about 140,000 residents, making it the sixth-largest city in Ohio (the metro area is much larger, at 840,000, and ranks fourth in Ohio). Long a manufacturing and shipping hub, Dayton now thrives more as a defense, research and aerospace hub. Although it attracts relatively few tourists, it has a good-sized GLBT population, and is also the closest city to the very progressive and gay-friendly college town of Yellow Springs, which is just 20 miles to the east.

Every year in early June, the city hosts the Dayton Gay Pride Parade and Festival. The event celebrates its 40th anniversary this year; dates are June 3-5, 2016.
