Vigil for Rae'Lynn Thomas (ASL interpreted)
Please join your LGBTIQA sisters, brothers, and siblings at 6:30pm on Wednesday August 24th to honor the life of our fallen sister Rae'Lynn Thomas. Please support us in remembering Rae'Lynn's life, grieving her death, and seeking justice for the violent way she was taken from us. While we know that most of the victims of murder in the LGBTIQA community are trans women of color, transgender people are not protected by Ohio's hate crime law. This has to change. Rae'Lynn Thomas is the second transgender woman to be murdered in Ohio this summer, the fourth trans woman to be murdered in Ohio since 2013 and the 19th trans person to be killed in 2016. We are outraged at these deaths and horrified that a member of our Columbus community has fallen victim to this epidemic of violence against transgender people. Join us at the Genoa Park Amphitheater as we commemorate Rae'Lynn's legacy of authenticity, beauty, and strength and commit to keeping her spirit alive while we fight for the safety of our trans sisters. Note: This event is a safer space for the trans community to grieve and will be centered around the voices of trans women of color. Cisgender people and white trans people are welcome to join us in grieving, but we ask that you be mindful of how you are taking up space and focus on how you can support trans women of color at this event.

Today the Department of Awesomely Good Deeds salutes police officers in Parma, Ohio who, upon discovering that a mourning dove had built her nest and laid eggs on the windshield cowl of one of their backup squad cars, went out of their way to protect the mama bird rather than displace her.

Officers attached an umbrella to the police car’s windshield, both to give the bird shade and keep her dry, set up a little cup of water for her, and taped off the vehicle so that no one would bother her. They also named her Gerty.

Armed Black Protesters Cause Cleveland Police To Call For “Temporary Suspension of Second Amendment”
The head of Cleveland's largest police union has just called on Ohio Gov. John Kasich to temporarily restrict the state's open carry gun laws and the Second Amendment during this week's Republican National Convention.

This call comes as members of various Black “Open Carry” and self-defense organizations began arriving in the city.

My city put up pride flags

I just wanted to show all of you the flags that Dayton put up for pride month:

[[image: downtown Dayton Ohio. The city put up the rainbow flag, the trans* pride flag, the pansexual pride flag, the bisexual pride flag, and the asexual pride flag along with some American Flags]]

I was so excited. Apparently whoever was tasked with finding pride flags to fly did some research. Here’s a picture of the flags from a different view point:

I’m not sure what the white one with the two rings and the rainbows in it is. Does anybody know?
