Your inside connection to all the LGBT-related news that matters in Ohio and beyond!


Ohio Queers is a new feature that will focus on lgbt-related legislation that is currently being debated at the Statehouse in Columbus, Ohio, and other gay-centric news happening in the state at large.

Reports are coming in that legislators Ross McGregor (R – Springfield) and Nickie Antonio (D – Lakewood) will be reintroducing the hotly contested Equal House and Employment Act into Ohio’s Congress in the coming months.

Many may remember EHEA’s fate in past years. The bill made it all the way through the House in 2009 but then died once it reached the Senate. McGregor and Antonio (Ohio’s first openly gay state level elected official) are hoping the recent strides Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and the popularity of gay republican groups GoProud and The Log Cabin Republicans will help push the measure through a Republican dominated Congress.

Here’s hoping the second time is a charm.
