Cheyenne Adopts Non-Discrimination Resolution
The Cheyenne City Council has adopted a non-discrimination resolution in support of greater equality for the LGBTQ community.
After nearly five hours of public comment from over 100 people Monday night, the council voted 7 to 3 to approve the resolution with an amendment that the city "recognizes the right of religious conscious."
"The ink's not dry on it," said Burlingame. "We certainly want to celebrate it as a victory, but there isn't one gay person who won't be evicted because of a resolution, there isn't one transgender student who can't lose their job because of a resolution, so we need to go further."
Jackson, Gillette and Douglas have passed similar resolutions, but Laramie is the only city in Wyoming with a non-discrimination ordinance.
Councilmen Jim Brown, Mike Luna and Mayor Rick Kaysen voted against the resolution.
