  • LGBTQ Nondiscrimination Ordinance: Golf Manor Council Meeting

    Join us as we support Equality Ohio for the second reading of Golf Manor’s LGBTQ-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance. The language of the ordinance is not finalized so we are expecting discussions and votes on amendments.

    Because it is still generally legal to fire someone, deny them housing, or access to public goods and services based on their sexual orientation or gender identity in Ohio. The Ohio Fairness Act would fix this by adding these protections to our laws at the state level but has not been passed in the more than 10 years it’s been at the Statehouse. In the meantime, it’s up to municipalities like Golf Manor Village to add these local protections for residents. Golf Manor Village Council has been considering a local LGBTQ-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance for over a year now. During the last few council meetings, we had opposition. We're hoping to be a bigger presence this time around.
