Vicco, Ky Approves LGBT Fairness Law

So often the stories I read about Kentucky are embarrassing - so I'm excited to actually read about something good!


From the article:

Situated in the southern tip of Perry County in the Appalachian mountain region, Vicco was incorporated in 1964 and currently boasts a population of 334 residents, according to 2010 U.S. Census data. It is nestled in the heart of coal country and was originally named for Virginia Iron Coal and Coke Company, a large land business still operating in the region.

"Vicco is a community that believes all folks should be treated fairly," shared Vicco City Attorney Eric Ashley. "We believe everyone deserves the opportunity for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Fairness is a Kentucky value, a Vicco value, and one of our most American values."

1. This is wonderful...

My mother and father grew up in Perry County Kentucky, leaving when they got married for South Carolina, then later New York City where my dad worked for years. I still have lots of family in Perry County and to see that all is not lost in some of these isolated communities is a very good thing.
