Orlando Domestic Partnership Registry Final Hearing
Mon. Dec. 12th @ 2:00pm
Orlando City Hall
400 S Orange Ave.
Orlando, FL 32801

All supporters of the registry are
asked to wear red in solidarity!

Just moments ago the Orlando City Commission voted unanimously to move forward to vote on the passage of Central Florida's first domestic partnership registry!

While today's vote is a big step in the right direction, the final vote is scheduled for next Monday, December 12th at 2:00pm.

Take a moment to thank Mayor Buddy Dyer and the Orlando City Commission for their leadership on this critical issue.

During today's public hearing the chambers were filled with community members dressed in red to show their support.  Commissioners Patty Sheehan, Daisy Lynum, and Tony Ortiz all provided heartfelt testimony in support of this critical ordinance.  

Just before he called the vote, Mayor Buddy Dyer stated,

"...there are economic reasons to pass this ordinance, but that's not why I'm so supportive of it. I'm supportive of this ordinance because it's simply the right thing to do and it's the right time to do it, and I hope that Orange County will join us."

Equality Florida is proud to have worked hand in hand with Mayor Dyer and advocates from Orlando Anti-Discrimination Ordinance Committee (OADO) to draft what will become Central Florida's first domestic partnership registry.

When passed, the registry will officially recognize LGBT families who live, work, and play in the City of Orland by providing them with a number of vital rights and protections. Additionally, a domestic partnership registry will support our local economy by recruiting and retaining the best talent.

Take a moment to say "Thanks!" to Mayor Dyer and the Orlando City Commission for their leadership on this important issue. After you send a note, please make plans to attend the City of Orlando public hearings on December 12th @ 2:00pm at Orlando City Hall.

Commissioner Tony Ortiz
