The Gay Ohio History Initiative is a special initiative of the Ohio History Connection. GOHI began in 2005 when Outlook Media donated a full run of Outlook periodicals to the Ohio History Connection. This project is designed to preserve Ohio’s LGBTQ+ history by building a collection of items that tell the story of the LGBTQ+ community in Ohio.

GOHI works to collect, preserve and share the history and culture of LGBTQ+ Ohioans. It is one critical way the Ohio History Connection’s fulfills its mission to Spark Discovery of Ohio’s Stories by embracing the present, sharing the past and transforming the future.
