The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights is hosting its second annual fair housing forum for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender residents.

The forum is part of the commission’s work with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to reach the LGBT community on housing discrimination.

The forum will include presentations by Ronni Sanlo, who focuses on LGBT history, and Maya Rupert, policy director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights. It will be in Louisville on June 12, starting at 10 a.m.

The Kentucky cities of Covington, Frankfort, Lexington, Louisville, Morehead and Vicco have passed local ordinances expanding civil rights based on sexual orientation.
