Laramie, Wyoming (USA)

CaptureThe Laramie City Council approved a local anti-discrimination ordinance. It voted 7-2 in favor of the measure that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in housing, employment and access to public facilities such as restaurants. The law does not cover “distinctly private” places of public accommodation, which intends to preserve women-only space.

Laramie is, of course, where Matthew Shepard was murdered by two men, a defining moment in the modern era of Gay rights.
