A new city is added to the list of cities which fight against discrimination based on gender identity. The city of Columbia in Missouri passed the law unanimously.

The members of the City Council accepted the law to fight discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations includes gender identity almost 10 years after discrimination based on sexual orientation has been banned.

According to Associated Press, the new law defines gender identity as an individual's identity, appearance, mannerisms or other characteristics regardless of the person's designation at birth as male or female.
