EqualityToledo is excited to announce its second "Hear Me Out" event at The Toledo Museum of Art. In conjunction with TMA’s Localeyes program, “Hear Me Out” will feature 5-6 people who will tell their story next to a specific piece of artwork. The storytellers chose a work within the Museum that they connect with emotionally or relate to. EqualityToledo is happy to invite the Toledo community to listen to several personal stories from local LGBTQ members in the hopes of improving understanding, awareness, and empathy in the community.
Join us for an evening of live local entertainment: bands, drag performers, theater companies, DJs and more at Toledo's famous LOVE WALL!
Your $5 donation at entry benefits Equality Toledo's ongoing education, activism, and other anti-defamation efforts to eliminate discrimination in our region on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
People under 18 admitted with a parent or legal guardian. Please note that some bands/performers may use harsh language during their performance. Can't wait to see you!
We will be setting up our Community Pantry, putting together shelving and organizing the space, and collecting donations. Volunteers needed! Please see below for how you can help before the event takes place!
We need in-kind donations to help set up our space. Besides our wishlist, we need a working refrigerator, trans care items, and travel size toiletries (no razors).
Here's how you can help:
While the data questionnaires are being worked on and improved, focus needs to turn to completing a fundraiser between now and Pride in August. Suggestion so far was a Silent Auction. Please come to this meeting with items, contacts, ideas, or anything else that can help us put together our first self-run center fundraiser!
Join us for our third film in our LGBTQ Film Series.
Based on a true story, Pride depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners' strike in 1984, at the outset of what would become the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign. The alliance was unlike any seen before and was ultimately successful.
We especially encourage our friends in labor to attend so that we can further strengthen our connections and create more unity within our movements.
Popcorn and light refreshments will be provided. Blankets and pillows are encouraged for added comfort.
Join us for our second of three films in our series.

Despite his achievements in the Civil Rights Movement, Bayard Rustin was silenced and imprisoned due to being an openly gay man in a homophobic era.
Happy to partner with Community Solidarity Response Network.#BlackLivesMatter
Popcorn and light refreshments provided. Feel free to bring a blanket and pillows for extra comfort.
