CLEVELAND — As Pride Month continues to be celebrated in June to honor the LGBTQ+ community, 3News held our latest A Turning Point panel discussion on Tuesday night.

3News reporter Emma Henderson moderated the forum which was streamed live at WKYC.com, the WKYC app, and on YouTube. The discussion focused on where things stand with LGBTQ+ protections in Ohio and what's next. 

Earlier this month, Ohio GOP House members inserted a transgender girl sports ban in an unrelated education bill. Hearings have been held for a bill that would ban gender-affirming care in Ohio.
