Jacksonville is the only major metropolitan area in Florida that does not have an ordinance prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation.
If gay activists have their way, that will change. They’re trying to mobilize support in Jacksonville’s business community for the new ordinance that would add sexual orientation to the city’s anti-discrimination law.

The city’s current anti-discrimination ordinance only bars discrimination in employment and housing based on race, religion, disability, sex, marital status, national origin, color and age.
