CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) -
The city of Clayton has become the fifth Missouri community to pass a law barring discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodations.
The Clayton City Council unanimously approved the measure Tuesday. Mayor Linda Goldstein says the St. Louis County community is resolved to protect the rights of all residents equally.
The statewide advocacy group PROMO says Clayton joins St. Louis, Kansas City, University City and Olivette among Missouri communities offering inclusive protections for sexual orientation and gender identity.
