Hundreds Rally with Fairness Group at Capitol

Feb 21, 2013

Proponents of equality for the gay community filled the floor of the Capitol Rotunda Wednesday afternoon in support of anti-discrimination legislation, saying popular momentum is on their side. The Fairness Coalition, a group of five state rights organizations, hosted the rally. Supporters were there in favor of House Bill 171 and Senate Bill 28, identical proposals that would amend numerous anti-discrimination statutes to include definitions of sexual orientation and gender identity.
