Today is the first day of October and October is LGBTQ History Month and TransOhio plans to focus on the history of transgender and gender nonconforming / gender non binary and genderqueer people this month. Each day on our Facebook page we will post a brief note about a particular person/ persons or event in the history of our involvement in society and its efforts to thrive and be who we are as beautiful people! Come check it out during the month. We are truly amazing people who have been in society for as long as it has existed.
