Ohio lawmakers part of nationwide movement pushing anti-LGBTQ legislation


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Ohio lawmakers are part of a record-breaking national conservative movement pushing anti-LGBTQ legislation, where 340 bills have been introduced in statehouses across the nation that affect states’ LGBTQ citizens. Three bills are pending in Ohio that supporters say protect children. “Young people experiencing gender identity disorder deserve to be loved, they deserve compassion and they deserve the proper treatment. They don’t deserve to be pushed into some of these things when they are not able to provide informed consent,” said Rep. Gary Click (R-Vickery, the sponsor of one bill. Opponents say they unfairly target members of a minority community. “It’s a terrible sin. It’s a really terrible way to treat our young people in this state, we have heard time and time again, from young people who are really frustrated with some of these extremist policies,” said Maria Bruno, the public policy director for Equality Ohio.
