Gay Rights Victories in Tallahassee


The Tallahassee city commission unanimously approved domestic-partner benefits for city employees in the capital of Florida on Wednesday, while it also agreed to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the city's antidiscrimination and antiharassment policies.

The domestic-partner policy change will allow same-sex partners of city workers access to health, dental, vision, and other benefits coverage, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.

"That means significant others, no matter their sexual orientation, will be eligible for the same benefits currently available to married couples," the Democrat reported. "The policy change also means a non-married couple that has been together for a number of years is eligible for benefits."

Prospective domestic partners will be required to provide proof of the relationship, such as joint mortgage statements or bank accounts.
