DANVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Danville has become the latest city in the state of Kentucky by passing a LGBT Fairness law Monday.

In a 4-1 vote, the city adopted discrimination protections in employment, housing and public accommodations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The city of Danville has received lawsuit threats and vocal opposition from local churches in the community.

Danville joins a growing list of cities including Louisville, Covington, Frankfort, Lexington, Morehead and Vicco who all have Fairness laws.

The city of Berea is scheduled to hold a first reading on their Fairness sometime in June, according to the Fairness Coalition.
