TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Topeka City Council has approved two ordinances aimed at reducing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in that city. The council approved a measure yesterday establishing a domestic partnership registry for same-sex and opposite-sex couples. The second ordinance would ban the city from discrimination in hiring based on gender identity. The measure also requires the city of Topeka to provide health coverage for any city employees registered with the city as being part of a domestic partnership. The council chamber was full for the meeting, with residents speaking for and against each of the proposals.
