Reading Protects Gays

Timothy Kincaid

October 1st, 2009

My knowledge of Reading, PA, is limited to the fact that it lent its name to the Reading Railroad, a property in Monopoly. But now I know this, as well (PGN):

The Reading City Council voted 6-1 on Sept. 28 to approve a nondiscrimination ordinance that extends protections to LGBT individuals in employment, credit, housing and public accommodations. Reading Mayor Thomas McMahon signed the bill into law that day, making Reading the 16th jurisdiction in the commonwealth to ban LGBT discrimination.

So if I ever have a chance to take a ride in Reading, I won’t pass go and I won’t demand $200. I’ll just enjoy that welcoming city.
