LGBT law moves forward – By Tamaryn Waters – Democrat Staff Writer

An ordinance that would put in place discrimination protections for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community won tentative approval Tuesday.

Leon County commissioners voted 4-3 to move forward with the ordinance, which would ban discrimination based on age, race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation and physical characteristics.
