KALAMAZOO TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- It may be a sign of the change in attitude toward gays, but when the city of Kalamazoo proposed adding members lf the LGBT community to its non-discrimination ordinance just a few years ago, it resulted in a months long controversy that had to be settled with a city wide vote.

Last night when Kalamazoo Township approved a similar ordinance, no opposition surfaced. In passed 6 to 0.

It protects gays and lesbians from discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodation. Supervisor Ron Reid wants to go one step further and will bring back a resolution urging the state to expand the Elliott-Larson Civil Rights Act to also include the LGBT community.
