Frankfort on Thursday approved an LGBT-inclusive anti-discrimination ordinance, making it the fifth Kentucky city to adopt such a measure.

After hearing nearly an hour of emotional public testimony, the Frankfort Board of Commissioners voted 3-2 to approve the protections.

The “fairness” law prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in the areas of employment, housing and public accommodations.

According to The State Journal, the ordinance was approved during a special meeting.

Frankfort joins Louisville, Lexington, Covington and Vicco with an ordinance protecting the LGBT community. Passage in Vicco drew nationwide attention, including a visit from cabler Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, due to its small size (population 334).

Supporters mounted a media campaign called Frankfort Fairness to lobby lawmakers to pass the law.

Opponents argued that the ordinance would discriminate against Christians who disagree with homosexuality.

“I don't particularly want to end up in court because I choose not to do something that a gay wants me to do,” Eunice Montfort, a human resources manager, told ABC affiliate WTVQ earlier this month. “Go find somebody who doesn't care. There are a zillion of them out there.”
