Living in the rural Midwest as a person who identifies as LGBTQIA+ can be scary when you don’t know who or where people will have your back. Be kind and let people know they are welcome and accepted.

There is absolutely no justifiable reason to not support Pride in this day and age. Showing people who already feel like outsiders that their community supports them is important!

I'll be a new resident soon...a voting resident who fully supports the equality and pride events for those who have had to struggle to gain them. Selective support? I'm definitely remember that at the polls and when asked for support for other things by this mayor.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Im part of the LGBT and we are human and have just as many feelings and rights as straight people! We all bleed red! People say black lives matter WE ALL MATTER!!!

As a gay man from a similar small town in Ohio, I know what such recognition means to residents. No one is asking for a parade or a three-day event, all the LGBTQ+ community is asking for is a piece of paper that, essentially, says, "You are here and we see you. We acknowledge you exist. And you are welcome..." Please reconsider your position on this request. Thank you.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I want to see that my childhood hometown is truly the affirming, welcoming and loving "community" it purports to be, for all of its residents and families. This proclamation in the City's name is a small step, but the ceasing of such a proclamation by its elected leadership sends an even bigger message that for symbolic and practical purposes it is, in actuality, not any of these things.

Thanks for adding your voice.

When someone is SO against something as simple as just supporting a cause, it tells me they have something to hide.

The mayor shouldn’t condemn the community he is a part of. He shouldn’t be ashamed and accept himself for what he really is.

Thanks for adding your voice.

We have a very good community that seems to accept all differences. I have lived in so many small communities that did not and it was devastating to some. Let's keep our community welcoming to all.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Having had the honor of being part of an adjacent rural community, I've seen the importance of representation and positive affirmation for our lgbtq+ community, especially our youth.
