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.

Equality Ohio is in the midst of their big marketing push to register and train people for their annual Lobby Day for Equality.

For those unaware, Lobby Day is a day when lgbt Americans and their supporters converge on the offices of their elected officials to talk about the benefits of putting through pro-equality legislation.

This year Lobby Day in Ohio is May 18 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year Equality Ohio is offering training sessions to better prepare participants before their head to the speak with their elected official. A list of the sessions and their locations is below. (Click here to register for a training)
