Bozeman Non-Discrimination Ordinance

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Bozeman City Commissioners will see the first draft of a nondiscrimination ordinance later this month.

Deputy Mayor Carson Taylor said the draft ordinance will be on the commission's agenda for discussion on April 28.

The city attorney is currently looking over a version Taylor wrote based off similar ordinances in Helena, Missoula and Butte.

The ordinance will make it illegal in Bozeman for anyone to be denied housing, employment and many other opportunities based solely on their sexual preference.

Taylor said he added some language to make it clear religious freedoms won't be compromised under the Bozeman ordinance.

But that said, he said he knows not everyone will be happy with it.

"We're not go to pass something that is going to satisfy everybody, and that is not our intent," said Taylor. "The goal is to pass something that is right for Bozeman."

Taylor said the ordinance won't be voted on for the first time until sometime in May.

Wednesday, Equality is Good for Bozeman hosted another meeting discussing transgender issues and why a non-discrimination ordinance is needed.

Organizers said they are planning more events in the coming months.
