History of Equality Ohio

Equality Ohio was founded in 2005 by a group of 65 dedicated LGBT activists and allies from all corners of Ohio after voters passed a constitutional amendment prohibiting same sex marriage and civil unions. Now, Equality Ohio’s work is broad and focuses on multiple aspects of LGBTQ equality in Ohio.
