A Celebration of our LGBT vets and Service members sponsored by Patriots’ Pride
Thursday, November 11 · 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Ohio Statehouse, South Side, Across from the Ohio Theater on State Street
Patriots’ Pride is a Veterans Day celebration in honor of all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender individuals, (LGBT) and other sexual minorities that have served their country honorably and have never, throughout the history of the United States of America, been treated equally.
We seek to remember our proud tradition across America, in small towns and big cities alike. Now, more than ever, it is important that each of us take a stand to end the horrific discrimination that has been on-going, and in fact encouraged by the very existence of the prejudiced legislation that governs our Armed Forces. As patriots we know our America can do better!
“On November 11 every State, district, and territory of the USA will have the opportunity to brag about how wonderful the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) employees of the Department of Defense, both past and present, really are,” said Lisa Kove, Executive Director of DOD FED GLOBE, who organized the event. “We need to let the world know we are as good as anyone they let serve as openly straight.”
