Gay Rights Rally Draws 200 to State Capitol
A familiar chant echoed throughout the Capitol Rotunda Wednesday above the mass of about 200 Kentucky gay rights supporters. “What do we want?” several speakers repeatedly yelled. “Fairness!” the crowd shouted back. “When do we want it?” they inquired again. “Now!”
House Speaker Greg Stumbo signed on Monday as the 17th co-sponsor to House Bill 171, which would protect Kentuckians statewide from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in the areas of housing, employment and public accommodations.
