MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. (KSDK) - Maryland Heights City Council voted unanimously Thursday evening to amend city housing laws, according to LGBT advocacy organization PROMO.

"We are excited to see that once again, yet another municipality has heard the call for fair treatment under the law. With each city, we get a step closer to equality for all Missourians," concluded A.J. Bockelman, executive director of PROMO.

The amendment protects renters and buyers from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
