Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson on Friday signed a bill that expands his city’s nondiscrimination law.

Jackson signed Ordinance 1466-13, which amends Cleveland’s anti-LGBT discrimination law to prohibit businesses from banning their employees and customers to use restrooms that are consistent with their gender identity, during a ceremony at Cleveland City Hall. Equality Ohio Executive Director Alana Jochum and Jacob Nash, a trans man who co-chaired the campaign in support of the proposal, were among those who joined the mayor on stage.
