Susquehanna Township Banned Discriminations For LGBTs

Written by 

Susquehanna Township, PA voted to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

It is almost unanimously that the law passed.

According to Pennlive, most citizens speaking at the commissioners’ meeting praised the ordinance — which calls for equality in housing, employment, and public accommodations — two raised concerns and one commissioner, Steven Napper, opposed the measure.

Napper said he knows "all about discrimination, and discrimination is ugly," but he opposed the ordinance, citing unanswered questions about enforcement and amendments.

According to Whptv, the ordinance also makes it legal for men who think they're women, and also men who think they are women, known as transgenders, to use the women’s/men's restroom in the township.
