Columbus, Ohio has been recognized as one of America’s top LGBTQ-friendly cities.  So it’s time for Columbus residents to show the country why by coming together to support the Columbus Blue Jackets Pride Night!

The Columbus Blue Jackets Pride Night takes place this year on Monday, January 15, 2024, which is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  This seems fitting somehow on a day that promotes that Hockey Is For Everyone.

The game is truthfully more of a pride day because it takes place during the day, at 1:00 PM at Nationwide Arena.  The Blue Jackets will be playing the Vancouver Canucks in what should be a great game.

A portion of each ticket will be donated to Stonewall Columbus, an LGBTQ+ Community Center & Organization serving Central Ohio.  Stonewall Columbus was started back in 1981 and has been dedicated ever since to helping the LGBTQ+ community in Central Ohio and beyond.

Some of the services they provide include:

  • Producing Lavender Listings, a listing of LGBTQ+-friendly businesses & organizations
  • Coming out support
  • Support groups
  • Counseling

They also run the Columbus Pride March every year.

There’s also a VIP upgrade available!  This VIP ticket gets you:

  • Pre-game happy hour int he CoLab from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
  • One free drink voucher (valid for limited beer, wine, or soft drink)
  • Free appetizers
  • Chance to win pride-themed raffle items
  • Meet and Greet opportunity with CBJectively Speaking hosts Laura Norman and Jeremy Paul

Oh, and did I mention the giveaway?  If you purchase a special ticket package, you get a free Pride belt bag!

Side note: am I the only one who remembers when they were called fanny packs?  Just me?  Okay, then.

You can find the special ticket package here.  If the tickets sell out there, you can still go and support the LGBTQ+ community of Columbus; you can find tickets here.
