By a 5-to-1 vote, the Tampa City Council has passed legislation banning discrimination based on gender identity and expression in employment, housing and public accommodation.
The new ordinance protects those with an “inner sense of being a specific gender” regardless of their “assigned sex at birth.”
Tampa’s human rights ordinance already prohibited discrimination based on sexual orientation. The new ordinance mirrors similar regulations in 12 other Florida municipalities and 13 states.
The federal government is currently drafting similar protections for federal employees.
