City Council to Vote on LGBT Protection Ordinance in Wilkes-Barre
WILKES-BARRE -- Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people living and working in Wilkes-Barre may no longer have to fear discrimination. City council is expected to vote Thursday night on an ordinance that would protect their civil rights. There is no state ordinance protecting the gay community from workplace or housing discrimination. Just earlier this week, Luzerne County Council shot down a proposal that would have extended those protections.
