Equality Ohio hosted a little fundraiser at Below Zero this evening, and I had the distinct pleasure of hanging with my dears Erin Upchurch (of Equality Ohio), Cameron Tolle (of Impact Cincinnati), and Rusty Lockett (of Church of our Savior and the Gay and Lesbian Community Center), all pictured above. I did the single most shocking thing you would ever expect from me … that is, gasp, signed up to be an Equality Ohio member. (Yes, Lynne, it’s true.) Thanks to Erin we have a mini update on the Equal Housing and Employment Act (EHEA — HB176), which would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression in Ohio.
