Dear TransOhio friends, family and supporters!
Tonight, Cleveland City Council will vote to ban discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations based on gender identity or expression!
TransOhio fully supports the collaborative work of Equality Ohio, the LGBT Center of Greater Cleveland, TransFamily of Cleveland and Cleveland's City Council in regards to banning discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations based on gender identity and expression.

"These organizations have worked tirelessly with Cleveland City Council members to ensure that all Cleveland residents, regardless of their gender identity or expression, are afforded the same opportunities for employment, housing and accommodations as their neighbors."

As a veteran of a similar council meeting I was subjected to hours and hours of lunatic right wing religious reich decaying homosexuality and just in general espousing hatred. Thank god the Fort Worth ordinance passed.
I will pray for out brothers and sisters in OHIO that they persevere and leave the meeting victorious.
