Manhattan, Kansas Passes Anti-Discrimination Policy for LGBT Citizens

Excellent news from Kansas! The city commission of Manhattan, KS (aka The Little Apple) has voted in favor of extending its anti-discrimination policy to include sexual orientation and gender identity. Jonathan Mertz, chair of the board of the Flint Hills Human Rights Project, the group that lead the charge to get the ordinance passed, reports that the city will now protect people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in employment, housing and public accommodations. Manhattan is the first city in Kansas to include gender identity as a protected class. Supporters of the ordinance remained committed to the inclusion of transgender people.

Our victory in this matter is exciting; however, the battle has just begun. The opposition has now mounted a massive campaign to get the law overturned. We in Flint Hills PFLAG thank everyone involved in this effort, and hope that we can keep these hard-fought rights for our family members and our community.
