Bold Nebraska and Human Rights Campaign step into LGBT battle

The campaign to generate support for legal protections of gay and transgender residents keeps ramping up, one day before the City Council votes on the issue.

Bold Nebraska, a liberal group that got lots of attention for its fight against the Keystone XL pipeline, joined local gay rights advocates to create a TV commercial on the issue that will first air Monday night.

The Human Rights Campaign, meanwhile, helped fund a (likely very pricey) survey of 1,003 registered voters in Omaha this weekend.

It’s conclusions? Sixty percent of voters favor changing city anti-discrimination laws to include gay and transgender residents (25 percent of voters oppose it).
