GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A proposed anti-discrimination ordinance aimed to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender residents and visitors in Glendale has strong support on both sides.

The Arizona Republic reports (https://bit.ly/1JQa5md ) that over the course of four public meetings on the matter, Glendale residents came to voice their concerns for the loss of religious freedom as well as support for additional protection for LGBT people.

According to a report on the meetings, there was no clear consensus on whether Glendale needs an anti-discrimination ordinance. The report will be presented to the City Council on Tuesday.

The ordinance would make it illegal to discriminate against anyone in Glendale based on a person’s age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital or family status, veteran status or disability in in employment, housing and public accommodations.
