The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights is offering education workshops on fair housing to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals across the commonwealth this week.

The commission is working with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to present the workshops. HUD recently changed its policy, to prevent discrimination against LGBT people.

Kentucky does not have a similar state-wide plan, but three citiesā€”Louisville, Lexington and Covingtonā€”have fairness ordinances that protect the LGBT community.
