Morehead City Council Unanimously Approves
Eastern KY City 6th in State with
Following a three-month process devoid of community opposition, the Morehead
City Council this evening unanimously approved an anti-discrimination Fairness
ordinance, extending discrimination protections in employment, housing, and
public accommodations to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. The
Eastern Kentucky city of 6,845, home to Morehead State University, is now the
sixth in the commonwealth to extend civil rights protections based on perceived
sexual orientation and gender identity.
Coalition efforts, the number of Kentucky cities with LGBT Fairness ordinances
has doubled in 2013 alone,
adding victories in the Appalachian town of Vicco (January 2013) and our
state's capital Frankfort (August 2013) to pre-existing laws in Covington
(2003), Lexington (1999), and Louisville (1999).
