NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The Norman City Council has approved an anti-discrimination resolution for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The Norman Transcript (https://bit.ly/1Ir0DfC ) reports that the council voted Tuesday for the resolution that affirms that sexual discrimination can include gender preference and sexual identity.

Freedom Oklahoma Executive Director Troy Stevenson, since federal law will apply and trump municipal law, it was not necessary to adopt an ordinance.

Council member Lynne Miller said the city’s civil rights ordinance has been on the books since 1986 and that Norman was affirming that all of its residents have a right to equality.
