The city of Ketchum in Idaho has just voted in favour of an anti-discrimination law which will allow a better protection for our community.

Ketchum becomes the third city of Idaho to pass such an ordinance after Sandpoint in 2011 and Boise in 2012.

The City Council unanimously approved the ordinance which prohibits discrimination based on a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity in cases of housing, employment and public accommodation as repots The Idaho Agenda.

"The city has zero tolerance when it comes to discrimination based on somebody’s sexual orientation," Mayor Randy Hall told the Idaho Mountain Express.

"We wanted to make sure we lead by example and make sure everybody understands that there will be no discrimination in Ketchum..."

Other cities of the state plan a vote on anti-discrimination laws like Pocatello, Moscow and Driggs. For this last city, the vote could take place in November.
