Greensboro Adds Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity to Protected Classes

January 7, 2015 at 4:54 pm Leave a comment

At its January 6, 2015 meeting Greensboro’s city council voted to ban discrimination in the “buying, renting, selling or advertising of real estate” based on sexual orientation or gender identity. From the Greensboro News & Record:

The city is the first in the state to include sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression in its housing nondiscrimination policies, city officials say.

The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to make the changes to three existing nondiscrimination ordinances…

The final change prohibits discrimination in the “buying, renting, selling, or advertising of real estate” on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity — a newer battleground in the movement for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.
