Gay rights supporters score two victories in conservative Arkansas

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 22:30
By Steve Barnes LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Reuters) - Gay rights advocates have scored two victories in Arkansas with the approval of local anti-discrimination measures in the state's most populous county and an Ozark Mountain tourist town despite conservative opposition. In Pulaski County, which includes the state capital Little Rock, the local governing body on Tuesday voted 9-3 to give initial approval to an ordinance barring discrimination in hiring based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Last month, the city government of Little Rock approved a nearly identical statute. In Eureka Springs, a popular tourist town nestled in the Ozark Mountains with about 2,200 people including a substantial gay population, more than 70 percent of voters on Tuesday backed an anti-discrimination ordinance.
