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

Here’s an official statement from Equality Ohio on the results of this year’s annual Lobby Day for Equality that took place May 18 this year:

Yesterday, hundreds of fair-minded Ohioans were in Columbus for the sixth annual Lobby Day for Equality.  More than 200 citizen lobbyists met with 122 legislators (out of 132 — only 10 were unwilling to hear from us).  All 33 Senate districts were lobbied, and 31 of those districts were lobbied by constituents who live in the district.  155 additional people lobbied from home, sending 318 messages to 89 legislators.  More than 100 people attended the closing reception, including dozens of legislators and legislative aides from both parties.

Congrats to Equality Ohio and all of this year’s Lobby Day particpants!
