TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa City Council unanimously passed an ordinance Wednesday that would give the LGBTQ community more protections.
The ordinance, proposed by Councilor Crista Patrick of District 3, recognizes "sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity" as protected classes under Tulsa's hate crime laws, according to the nonprofit Oklahomans for Equality.
The organization said Oklahoma's hate crime laws cover hate bias crimes motivated by race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, and disability.
