Gay Protections Take Effect in Salt Lake City


In a first for Utah, an ordinance protecting gays from discrimination in housing and employment took effect in Salt Lake City on Friday.

Salt Lake City's Democratic mayor Ralph Becker attended a ceremony on Friday to celebrate the new law. Becker was joined by John Bennett, the gay nephew of Utah junior senator Bob Bennett.

"This is truly a good Friday," Bennett, said, according to the Associated Press. "Today I'm ecstatic."

Gay rights advocates are pushing for similar gay protections in 10 other Utah cities or counties.
