Helena City in Montana unanimously approved an ordinance which prohibits any discrimination in housing, employment and many kinds of public accommodation based on sexual orientation.

 

"I believe, and I felt the commissioners believe, that being LGBT is part of the human condition," said Commissioner Katherine Haque-Hausrath, the sponsor of the measure, speaking of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people reports The Independent Record.

"It’s something that people cannot change, and we believe that people should not be discriminated against because of their sexual orientations."
