Effort begins in Battle Creek to end discrimination against gays

Group wants to collect 1,000 petition signatures before next City Commission meeting
About 40 people gathered Tuesday night at St. Thomas Episcopal Church to find a way to end employment and housing discrimination against non-heterosexuals. Currently, gay, lesbian and transgender people can be refused jobs, fired and discriminated against for housing if they are perceived to be or present themselves as outwardly gay.
