KANSAS CITY, Mo. _ Advocates for LGBTQ Kansans say recent decisions by two Johnson County cities to pass anti-discrimination ordinances suggest support for such laws is growing and could spread beyond cities in northeast Kansas.

KCUR reports Merriam has debated a non-discrimination ordinance for sexual orientation and gender identity and could vote in January. Residents in Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park and Shawnee have begun pressing their local governments to take up the issue, said Brett Hoedel, chairman of the Metro Kansas City chapter of the nonprofit LGBTQ advocacy group Equality Kansas.
