TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Frustrated with a recent Kansas House bill aimed toward the gay community, Topeka City Councilman Chad Manspeaker said Tuesday night he does not want people viewing Topeka as a city of hate.
In comments at the end of Tuesday night's meeting, Manspeaker said he will soon propose a list of LGBT supportive ordinances, which would include a domestic partner registry, partner benefits for city employees and adding gender identity to the city hiring policy.
Chad Manspeaker tweeted some of the ideas he plans to propose:
I’ll propose a domestic partnership registry, partner benefits for our employees and adding gender identity to our hiring policy.— Chad Manspeaker (@manspeaker) February 19, 2014
I look forward to full equality for all Topekans and hopefully soon all Kansans. #lgbt— Chad Manspeaker (@manspeaker) February 19, 2014
