“In The States” chronicles Ohioans experiences without legal protections

In The States, billed as a “documentary from the gay experience,” has released a segment on Ohio, the lowest-ranking state when it comes to LGBT protections. The documentary details a lesbian and transgender man’s experiences as Ohioans fired for their identities.

Ohio’s Equal Housing and Employment Act (HB176), legislation that would protect against experiences like those chronicled in the documentary, is stalled in the Ohio Senate because Senate President Bill Harris doesn’t think there is a need for these legal protections. Equality Ohio is urging everyone to write letters to Harris explaining why non-discrimination legislation is important and their experiences with discrimination.

Send your letter to:
Ohio Senate President Bill Harris
1 Capitol Square, 2nd Floor
Columbus, Ohio 43215
