SARASOTA - City commissioners voted unanimously Monday to pursue including transgender people in a list of protected classes in the city's anti-discrimination code.

Pride is an incredible opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate our strength, our diversity, and (of course) our pride. It's also our best chance to build grassroots excitement across Florida for Get Engaged, our campaign to secure the freedom to marry! Florida leads the south in public support for marriage equality, and we need your help to engage the community together in this fight.
