City-Council President Steve Talley backs Prop 622

Thanks to the tireless work of Indiana Equality Region 8 (especially Bil Browning, Jerame Davis, Jeff Newman, Seth Kreigh, Gary Welsh and many others including the folks from Greater Indianapolis Fairness Alliance) in getting information and education about anti-gay descrimination to the city-county council, the president of the council, Steve Talley (D) has decided to vote in favor of Proposition 622 to include sexual orientation and gender identity in the city’s Human Rights Ordinance. This is a great sign for the ordinance, and is a real victory for justice and fairness in Indianapolis.
There’s still a ways to go; a second committee hearing is on Tuesday, and the vote in the full council is coming up soon. For both events, we need everyone possible to attend the meetings at the city-county building downtown (I’ll post directions and parking info before each event). And I need you to attend Tuesday for moral support!
You can thank Steve Talley for working hard to get information and education by talking to GLBT people about their experiences by e-mailing him: stalley@indygov.org. While you’re at it, stop by Bilerico and thank them as well.
