2015 has been a big year in the fight for LGBT equality, yet despite the victory at the Supreme Court there still remains a lot of work to do secure civil rights for gay Americans; and this reality was made abundantly clear when the city of Houston, Texas recently repealed its anti-discrimination ordinance which was known has H.E.R.O. Now, in the wake of that defeat the next major showdown over protections for LGBT people is taking form in Jacksonville, Florida where the city’s elected officials are getting ready to vote on the matter of establishing an anti-discrimination ordinance there. Joining me today to talk all about the fight to enact civil rights protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Jacksonville, Florida is Nadine Smith the co-founder and CEO of Equality Florida, the state's largest organization dedicated to ending discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. You can also follow Nadine on Twitter and Facebook & Equality Florida on Twitter as well.
