Equality Cincinnati wants to hear from YOU! In order to break down community divisions and increase the impact of our mission--folks need to know who we are and what we believe in.
This is YOUR opportunity to stand up and be counted. As a LGBTQ individual or as an ally--tell us what matters to you in the fight for inclusion, fairness, and equality. Tell us YOUR story.
The name of Equality Cincinnati's Scholarship is simple: it is about COURAGE. This word was chosen as because it is a key identifying characteristic of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in Cincinnati. It is a trait that we see in our youth and young adults growing up in Cincinnati and contending with homophobia and heterosexism.
As responsible, caring adults and members of Equality Cincinnati, we extend a supportive hand to our youth and acknowledge the courage it takes to be who you are and make a stand for change here in your community. As part of that recognition, Equality Cincinnati is providing a $1,000 Scholarship to a member of the LGBTQ/ally community who exemplifies courage and leadership.
