The history of Ohio’s LGBTQ+ community is as colorful and diverse as its representatives. Several entities around the state maintain collections of Ohio’s LGBTQ+ story including the Ohio State University Libraries and the Ohio History Connection—both located here in Columbus.
The Gay Ohio History Initiative (GOHI) is a special initiative of the Ohio History Connection; GOHI works to collect, preserve and share the history and culture of LGBTQ+ Ohioans—explore more by clicking here.
