My pride lives on

Lifeline of Ohio is dedicated to connecting with, and educating, the LGBTQIA+ community. Our outreach began in 2015 and to ensure we appropriately connected with this community we assembled a volunteer-based LGBTQIA+ community committee. The committee provided insight to help develop resources, create opportunities and determine areas of focus for outreach. Lifeline of Ohio’s community engagement includes sponsorships, participating in multiple Pride events, an AIDS Walk and other LGBTQIA+ focused events.

We’re proud to have empowered the LGBTQIA+ community to register as organ, eye and tissue donors by reaching nearly 500,000 members and allies through focused media including LGBTQIA+ publications, and social media platforms, as well as platforms like Equitas and Equality Ohio, crucial partnerships in helping amplify the Donate Life and HOPE Act messages.
