House committee hears testimony on LGBT rights bill

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WDRB) -- The House Judiciary Committee heard testimony Wednesday about a bill that would prohibit discrimination against the LGBT community.

Members of the Fairness Coalition filled the room to show support. Committee members heard testimony from Police Sergeant Kile Nave, who says he was fired from Audubon Park Police Department for being gay.

"I'm a proud Christian, a Republican, a gun owner and I'm gay and I deserve to be protected from discrimination like everyone else," he said.

Nave says through Louisville's Fairness ordinance, a city Human Relations Commission found he was fired because of his sexual orientation. He believes all people in the Commonwealth should have that same kind of protection.
