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

There’s a lot of gay love happening in the city of my alma mater. (Go Bobcatas!) It appears at that the Athens City Council has passed laws protecting same-sex partners and a hate crimes law has also recently come down the pike.

Here’s a few more details from Equality Ohio:

The Committee to Move Athens Forward has worked hard for over a year with City Councilmembers in Athens, Ohio to pass local legislation that is in line with the city’s efforts to support and protect all its citizens.  Both ordinances passed with the full support of Council and the Mayor.  We particularly want to thank Councilmembers Bill Bias, Elahu Gosney and Jim Sands for their courage and hard work.  Contact the City of Athens for more information or to register your domestic partnership.
