Who knew? New Albany more progressive than most of Kentucky as it (very quietly) passes gay-rights law, by Curtis Morrison (Insider Louisville)
You probably have already heard, in the 3-1 vote Monday, the city of Vicco, Kentucky has adopted an ordinance banning discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Vicco is in Eastern Kentucky, and has 334 residents.
But what three mile-stretch of Louisville’s Ohio River shoreline can one swim across, with the comfort of knowing discrimination protections for gays, lesbians and transgendered await on the banks of the other shore?
If you guessed West End frontage opposite the city of New Albany, Indiana, you are correct.

Morrison: "Who knew? New Albany more progressive than most of Kentucky as it (very quietly) passes gay-rights law."
Somehow, Curt manages to steer the Insider Louisville discussion away from Lynn's Paradise Cafe recriminations onto an as-yet low key little something that New Albany is quite rapidly becoming renowned for possessing. Apart from the splashiness of aquatic proposals, human rights protections genuinely matter. Does the city itself "get it"?
