The Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, known also as Prop. One in The Houston City Election and as HERO, is on the ballot in Houston on this Election Day.
This very important ordinance prevents discrimination against LBGTQ persons in employment, housing and public accommodations. It needs to pass. Marriage equality is a wonderful thing, but, in most places, people can still be fired and denied housing for being gay. The good people of Houston have tried to change this, but bigots are spending their money turning it into another spurious "bathroom debate", rather than discussing the serious discrimination faced by our LBGTQ brothers and sisters all across this nation.
Every Houstonian can be a HERO by voting for the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance today.
