The city of Dallas may change the language of its anti-discrimination ordinance. Supporters want to define gender identity, but there is some controversy.
Those who support the proposed amendment said they want Dallas to clarify its existing ordinance so that discrimination based on gender identity and expression is explicitly banned.
Sexual orientation is already covered by the anti-discrimination law, but supporters said gender identity is different.
Last week voters in Houston said no to an equal-rights ordinance. Opponents there characterized it as a bathroom ordinance.
