Wilkes-Barre Approves LGBT Ordinance

WILKES-BARRE -- Wilkes-Barre City Council gave final approval to the city's LGBT ordinance Thursday evening.

When it becomes law in about two weeks, it will ban discrimination against people in Wilkes-Barre because of their sexual orientation.

It also prohibits firing people or denying them housing on the basis of their sexual orientation.

The council in Wilkes-Barre voted 5-to-zero to approve the LGBT ordinance.

    Ugh, there is so many special rights any more; now it seems like it’s open season to discriminate against regular white folks. If some one assaults a black person or spits on a lesbian lady its an automatic hate crime even if they deserved it but if a pure innocent white child were savaged by a minority, they would give the minority a medal or something! Its just not right! Once President Trump is in office he will stand up for the real americans who built this country into the greatest country on earth!

      Yeah, thanks to the LGBT community, you no longer have to worry about getting fired or evicted just because you’re straight.

      You’re welcome.

    This is way overdue. I am so sick and tired of getting picked on when I’m at a restaurant and I ask for a table for two and people laugh at me. I can’t help that I was born transgender. I don’t question God and either should you.

      That’s not discrimination….that’s called making fun of you…..did they give you a table? then shut up…
