The Fort Worth City Council listened to several hours of comment on the recommendation of the Diversity Council to add transgender language to the city’s non-discrimination policy.
The GLBT community was present with well over a hundred representatives. Many spoke in support of the new change in law, including transgender people, parents of transgender people, gays, lesbians, and even straight allies.
In opposition were several people from the community including several lawyers, conservatives, and Christians. While most contended that they were not hateful of gay people they feared the new ordinance, it’s language, and its affect on the youth of the community.
