Protest Threatened Over Gay Men's Eviction
The Kentucky Equality Federation says it is planning a public protest because two gay men with intellectual and developmental disabilities were kicked out of a recreational center run by the city of Hazard on Friday. The federation, which advocates for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex, says the two were discriminated against because of their sexual orientation. The city's attorney, however, said the facility does not discriminate, and "there is a dispute as to the facts of what transpired."
