(WOIO) -

I am Ohio State Representative, Nickie Antonio.

We recently celebrated a landmark ruling when the supreme court allowed all legal marriages to be recognized by the federal government including those gay couples that have won the right in thirteen states and the District of Columbia. 

Hard-working Ohioans who are also members of the LGBT community contribute every day to the success and well-being of our state.

We work, worship, pay taxes, volunteer, send our children to school, and are civically engaged.

All Ohioans deserve respect and the full scope of rights and responsibilities that full citizenship brings.

The right to fair housing, employment protections, and marriage equality create the path towards freedom for all Ohioans.

It is time to do the work so we may be proud of an Ohio that will not tolerate discrimination of any of her citizens…where everyone is protected equally…because equality for all is a cornerstone of our Democratic society.

Thank you.
