Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover on Thursday, Dec. 17, issued an executive order protecting LGBT city employees there from discrimination in employment.

It was his first executive order as mayor.

The move puts Shreveport on the very short list of Louisiana cities offering such protections to their LGBT workers. Baton Rouge and New Orleans are the only other cities in that state to do so. And New Orleans is the only city that offers such protections to employees in the private sector.
