Tuesday night, the Boise, Idaho City Council unanimously passed an ordinance that will protect LGBT people from discrimination in employment, housing, and public discrimination. Boise is only the second city in the state, following Sandpoint, to pass such protections. The policy does provide an exemption for churches and other private organizations like the Boy Scouts of America. Watch a report from KBOI featuring a standing ovation from the crowd after the vote:
