Series IN THE LIFE names Ohio as one of the worst states for LGBT rights

4 years ago, I settled into the Victorian Village neighborhood of downtown Columbus, Ohio. It borders the Short North Arts District and is considered one of Columbus’s gay friendly and more progressive neighborhoods. While I am not gay, my husband and I enjoy the benefits of living in a microcosm of young professional progressive thinkers. As the Gay Columbus Guide states about the neighborhood I live in (and a few others), “This part of Ohio ranks among the highest per capita donations to LBGT political causes in the USA. Way to put your money where your heart is, Columbus.”
