Equality Ohio marches in Cleveland

cleveland_0820“Equality Ohio,” organizers for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer rights, had a militant contingent in this year’s Cleveland Pride Parade on Aug. 8. The spirited group of more than 40 people chanted: “Trans folks are under attack! What do we do? Stand up! Fight back!” The chant was repeated to include Black folks, women, Latinos and Latinas, gay marriage and health care. Each call and response was chanted louder than the one before it.
