A northern Kentucky city has become the 12th in the commonwealth to pass a law protecting the LGBTQ population from discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations. 

Dayton city leaders unanimously approved this week a fairness ordinance. Mayor Ben Baker urged members of the General Assembly to pass a statewide law extending civil rights protections to the LGBTQ community. 

Next year will mark 20 years since legislation was introduced in the General Assembly.
