As first seen on the blog Joe. My. God. the Kentucky town of Vicco has passed a anti-descrimination ordinance that includes protections for “actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity”
The tiny Kentucky mining town of Vicco, population 334, has approved broad anti-discrimination protections for LGBT residents. The ACLU of Kentucky reports:
‘Today the Fairness Coalition joined the Appalachian town of Vicco, Kentucky as they approved the state’s first lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) anti-discrimination Fairness ordinance in a decade. The measure, which prohibits discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations based upon a person’s actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity, received support from three of the city’s four-member commission and Mayor Johnny Cummings. Vicco joins three other cities in the commonwealth with anti-discrimination Fairness protections–Covington, which passed an ordinance in 2003, Lexington, and Louisville, which both approved laws in 1999.’
Why It Gets Better is a series of postings showing, real-time, concrete, tangible ways that life is getting better for LGBT people.
