Oklahoma City

The Oklahoma City Council has passed LGBT housing protections by a 5-4 majority, according to Oklahoma Rep. Emily Virgin, whose district includes Oklahoma City.

“Great news! Congratulations, @FreedomOklahoma and many more who worked very hard on this,” Virgin tweeted.

Six people spoke in favor of the ordinance and none opposed.

The city of Norman, south of Oklahoma City, passed the state’s first nondiscrimination ordinance two weeks ago.
