Worth Sharing

Even though I am still pretty sick and weak I felt this bit of information was worth sharing.
Cincinnati City Council voted Wednesday to extend discrimination protection to homosexuals and transgender people.

By an 8-1 vote, Council amended the city's human-rights ordinance to extend protection against discrimination to homosexuals and transgender people in jobs and housing. The ordinance protects people from discrimination based on race, gender, age, color, religion, disability status, marital status or ethnic, national or Appalachian regional origin. The change, effective next month, adds "sexual orientation or transgendered status" to those protected categories.

Finally a step in the right direction.
