Pride Month – Does Equality Exist in Buckeye State

June is Pride Month, and often those who honor it celebrate with festivals, parades and more. It’s seen as a visible way for the LGBTQ community and its allies to celebrate who they are.

Guest host Mike Kallmeyer spoke with State Sen. Nickie Antonio, D-Lakewood, the first openly gay state representative in Ohio; Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey, Hamilton County’s first openly gay sheriff; and Key Beck, Acting Senior Director of Clinical Prevention Programs at Equitas Health, to discuss efforts in Ohio on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community. While many feel great progress has been made on LGBTQ+ rights, some still say there is still a long way to go to truly achieve equality.
