Evansville, Indiana, has added a provision to its new anti-discrimination law making it illegal to discriminate against individuals based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. The ordinance defines sexual orientation as male or female sexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, real or perceived, by orientation or practice.
The provision, added to Evansville’s non discrimination code, aims to attract a more diverse community and new businesses. The code also protects individuals who may face discrimination based on their race, color, disability, ancestry and national origin and encourages equal opportunities in education, employment, access to public conveniences and accommodations.
How nice 🙂
