Ohio Not Okay, Say Some Gays

The majority of local gays may enjoy living in Columbus, Ohio, but not everything’s peachy keen:

[A survey of about 3,400] found that:

• More than half the participants were in committed relationships, and 80 percent want the right to legally marry in Ohio.

• Nearly 60 percent said they had been called names, threatened, stalked, intimidated or had personal property defaced because of their sexual orientation.

• More than half said they had experienced discrimination; among that group, two of three reported workplace discrimination.

• Thirteen percent either had not been tested for HIV or did not know their HIV status.

None of these are good things, of course…
