Orlando Mayor Moving on Domestic Partnership Registry

Check out this blog post from the Orlando Sentinel about Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer moving forward on a domestic partnership registry. Equality Florida is a member of the Orlando Anti-Discrimination Ordinance Committee, which has been pushing the issue with the City Beautiful and Orange County. The group has already led successful pushes for non-discrimination policies and domestic partner benefits for employees in both the city and the county.

A registry would allow both same-sex and opposite-sex couples living in Orlando to receive certain legal protections/recognition by the city. If passed, Orlando would be the first major city in central Florida with a registry. Keep an eye out for more on this as the issue develops. 

Orlando Mayor Dyer moving forward on domestic partner registry 

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer is gathering feedback on what it would take to set up a domestic partner registry, and his spokeswoman said the goal is to bring something to the City Council — and possibly Orange County leaders — some time before the holiday season.

The registry idea is geared to offer more legal tools for same- and opposite-sex domestic partners who have to deal with medical emergency, end-of-life, school and other relationship issues that arise.

County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, who is on vacation this week, made the expansion of county benefits to same-sex employees a priority when she took office. And Jacobs says she could possibly support a registry. But the mayor says her agenda is full, and she doesn’t have the staff to tackle it now.

Groups and individuals have continued to lobby for her support, including local leaders of PFLAG, and former Commissioner Linda Stewart. Here’s an open letter that the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce sent Jacobs last month.

So Jacobs wants to review what Dyer comes up with on the issue. Dyer spokeswoman Heather Fagan said city legal staff is reaching out for input from area hospitals and school officials, and could finalize something in September.

In an email, Fagan wrapped it up this way: “Once we know if this will be city-only (or involve the county) we can proceed with bringing this to council…. maybe into the October/November time frame.”
