Wow. The Cincinnati Enquirer is really keeping up with the LGBT community. Two articles were posted: one on the last Cincinnati Guerrilla Queer Bar and another on the organizing around the response to the recent hate crime.
The CGQB story features interviews from Ethan Philbrick and myself, among others. It gives a very positive look at the Cincinnati queer community and is worth the read. The comments section is heating up quickly as well.
The other story chronicles the organizing after the recent hate crime and the upcoming sit-in. The author speaks to Chris Gilbert, one of the event organizers. My favorite quote from the story is, “The whole point is just getting out there and showing people that when things happen, we’re not going to be passive anymore. We’re going to be proactive and seek some change. People are ready to get up and do something. It’s a new generation. People aren’t afraid anymore,” from Gilbert.
