John Gantt and Scott Didier have been together for over 20 years and both men have spent that time in service to Dayton's LGBT community. John was the first openly gay man to serve on the city's Human Relations Council. Scott also served on the board of the council, and both of them worked with city leaders to develop Dayton's anti-discrimination ordinance covering sexual orientation and gender identity.
