Ohio: Columbus City Council Passes Transgender Anti Discrimination Laws

Columbus Ohio. From TransOhio. The Columbus City Council passed transgender anti discrimination on Monday 16, 2008.

TransOhio blog "The Columbus City Council voted 6-0 to PASS the ordinance revisions which will add the following classes to Columbus City Code (chapter 2331): Age, Disability, Sex, Military status, Familial status and Gender Identity and Expression."

The Columbus City Council then went on to ask the State Legislature to follow suit according to 365 Gay.com.

This is indeed a tremendous day in our struggle for equality. Every step forward for transgender people is a leap for all LGBT people.

Being a native of Ohio this warms my heart. Thank you to all that made this happen!
