John Zeh Spotted at Pride Parade

Local writer and activist John Zeh died unexpectedly in February. Some of his friends memorialized him at a brief ceremony in Burnet Woods prior to Cincinnati’s 2006 Gay Pride parade and festival. His empty wheelchair was then decorated and entered as one of the floats in the 2006 Pride Parade.

John’s presence at the parade was more than just symbolic. Arrayed on the chair among the memorabilia, protest signs and his life’s ephemera was a box containing his ashes, which have rested on a shelf in his lawyer’s office since his death.

No word yet as to where Zeh went after the parade.
