SNAPS: The Equality Center provides care amidst COVID-19

The Oklahomans for Equality (OKEQ) has existed for 14 years and was previously known as the Tulsa Oklahomans for Human Rights (TOHR). The Equality Center was named after Dennis R. Neill, who founded TOHR. The building was purchased in October 2005 and opened in February 2007 after extensive renovations.


During the time of the lockdown, the staff has practiced extra precautions with masks, cloves, hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and sanitized the whole building. Photo credited to Anna Fuhrmeister.

Public libraries are limited on LGBTQ resources, therefore, OKEQ’s library provides the resources and is mostly focused on LGBTQ+ specific topics. Photo credited to Anna Fuhrmeister.
