Nashville City Paper - GLBT community seeks to be included in nondiscrimination program
The Nashville City Paper reports that Nashville's GLBT community seeks to be included in nondiscrimination program in this story. It's true the GLBT community didn't actively seek to be included in this bill, but isn't it odd that one of the co-sponsors of the bill, who campaigned as openly gay - Keith Durbin - said he didn't include the GLBT community in the bill because he wasn't approached by the community. I'm guess its not fair to expect some leadership on this issue, but if you were drafting legislation wouldn't you, as a gay legislator, think about including your community - or even having discussions with leaders of that community about it?
