After over a year of discussions, the Gettysburg Borough Council voted unanimously on Monday to approve an LGBTQ-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance.
Although the document bans discrimination based many social categories, the document significantly expands the definition of sex discrimination.
In addition to sex as defined at birth, the ordinance also protects people on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and gender transition and/or transgender.
In this podcast I talk with Gettysburg resident Chad-Alan Carr, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Youth Congress Jason Landau Goodman, Borough Council Vice President Wesley Heyser, and council member Patricia Lawson, all of whom were instrumental in developing the ordinance.
The podcast answers many questions about the importance of the legislation and its meaning for LGBTQ residents in the borough.
