Ohio's first LGBT historic marker placed in downtown Cleveland

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Ohio City is now home to the state's first LGBT historic marker at West 29th Street and Detroit Avenue.

The same intersection is where the LGBT Community Center is located and it's also where, in 1989, the first Pride festival was held in Cleveland.  

Kerry McCormack is the Ward 3 Cleveland City Councilman representing the neighborhoods of downtown, Ohio City, Tremont and Stockyards.

June is Pride month.

Pride in the CLE is a week long celebration of LGBTQ+ visibility in Cleveland that begins on May 29 and concludes on June 4. There is a march and festival on Saturday, June 3. The march will step off at 12:00 p.m. and lead to a festival at Cleveland's Public Square.
