"Out Lesbian Alabama Legislator Hopes To Expand Anti-Bullying Provisions"

Alabama Rep. Patricia Todd (D), the states first openly gay legislator, has filed a bill that will expand anti-bullying protections for LGBT youth. Though the same bill was never brought to a committee vote in the last session, Todd points to a recent poll found that 70 percent of Alabamans support the extension. The same study found that 50 percent of Alabamians support employment, housing, and public accommodation protections for LGBT citizens as well.
