Cincinnati Gets Its Pride On May 31st

Author: , May 5th, 2014

Cincinnati Gay Pride 2014The parade will run the following route: Staging/starting area at 7th St & Culvert St, from there parade participants will travel west on 7th St, turn south (left) on Vine St, turn east (left) on 5th at Fountain Square, turn south (right) at Walnut St, turn east (left) at Freedom Way, turn south (right) on Joe Nuxhall Way (Main St) at Great American Ball Park, turn east (left) on Mehring Way.

From the first march and celebration, Cincinnati Pride has grown to include a week-long celebration of our GLBT diversity. Over the years, Cincinnati Pride has taken on several forms and names as a dedicated group of individuals and local GLBT organizations would take part in shaping its growth.

There were tough times along the way and our local pride efforts would mirror those struggles seen across the nation and the world as we stood for acceptance and equality. The movement would face challenges from HIV, AIDS to marriage equality and “don’t ask, don’t tell” along the way.

If you still think of Cincinnati as just another Ohio city that starts with the letter C, we’ve got news. The state’s third largest metropolis is now home to a flourishing arts neighborhood, trendy new restaurants, and a sparkling new public park – not to mention venerable cultural institutions like Cincinnati Opera, which is the second oldest opera company in the country. Here’s how to get the absolute best of the city without breaking your budget…

High Culture, Low Prices

If the upcoming 2014-2015 season lineup is any indication – September’s gala opening performance will feature three Beethoven works led by Lang Lang, followed by subsequent evenings honoring Debussy, Stravinsky, Chopin, and more – the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra is the city’s premiere cultural institution. Tickets for the orchestra’s pops concerts start at $25, but for $12, you can enjoy a more traditional symphonic program.

The CSO happens to share a home (namely, the 136-year-old Music Hall) with the equally-esteemed Cincinnati Opera, which celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2014. The upcoming season, which begins June 12, will include such highlights as Carmen, La Calisto, and Madame Butterfly. Of particular note is Opera In the Park, which kicks off the season with a free, outdoor performance in Washington Park.

After decades of declining growth, Ohio’s third-largest city is on a huge upswing, pumping billions of dollars into new development and revitalization. In less than 10 years, the city has transformed itself back into a growing, bustling destination as businesses and residents flock to downtown and its surrounding neighborhoods. Although visitors can drop plenty of cash on a Reds or Bengals game, gambling in a brand-new $400 million casino, or eating some of that much-loved pork, arguably the best things to do in Cincinnati are absolutely free.
