City Council adds Gender Identity to non-discrimination policy
Cass Averill is transgender and says the protections aren't special rights but right rights that help him become equal in the community.

"We are pinpointed in society. We are discriminated against actively. The reason why other classes aren't named is because there is privilege there. They aren't actively discriminated against in their day-to-day lives," Averill said.
