When the Mansfield Gay Pride Association was founded in 2015 we wanted to celebrate the individuality of the LGBTQ community in Mansfield, Ohio and its surrounding area.  The foundation of that celebration is the annual Mansfield Pride Festival and Parade.  We are now in the progress of building on that foundation with the creations of the Mid-Ohio LGBTQ Community Center.  As we plan and grow, the community center, we will provide services, education, counseling, and fulfill the needs of the LGBTQ community and its allies.
