Attempt to Repeal Gay Rights Law Fails in Michigan

A Ypsilanti, Michigan anti-discrimination ordinance that includes protection for lesbians and gay men was upheld in a 56 to 44% vote, despite a well-financed anti-gay rights campaign featuring Green Bay Packers football player Reggie White.

The ordinance was unanimously approved last December but was suspended three months later after significant numbers of people signed a petition calling for its repeal.
