Cincinnati has come a long way over the past several years — and its first openly gay city council member is living proof.
Chris Seelbach, who was elected last week and who in 2004 helped to repeal an 11-year-old city ordinance barring antidiscrimination protection for gay and lesbian residents, now plans to offer legislation that would provide equal benefits for city employees with same-sex partners. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that he may find majority support for such a measure (read the article here).
Seelbach was among seven Democrats elected to the Cincinnati City Council in the November 8 election.
