Equal Standing to the LGBTQ Community Under Every Facet of Rights
February 8, 2017
CITY OF GULFPORT, FLORIDA RESOLUTION NO. 2017-02 ADOPTED JANUARY 17, 2017: SUPPORTING EQUAL STANDING TO THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY IN EVERY FACET OF RIGHTS PROVIDED UNDER THE STATE OF FLORIDA
Once again, the Gulfport City Council proactively takes a position to support legislative and other regulatory initiatives that aim to ensure equal rights for all people. In the state of Florida, LGBTQ men and women are still denied statewide protections against discrimination. There simply is no excuse. Personally, as a City Council Member, I know I can use Resolution No. 2017-02 to advocate against any further attempts to limit equality and denying access to services base on gender identity or sexual orientation.
