Pueblo, Colorado's City Council voted 6-1 on Tuesday to approve benefits for same-sex couples, KKTV reports:
Some people cheered and others stormed out after it passed the city council by a 6 to 1 vote Tuesday evening.
At a public hearing before the vote, supporters made passionate pleas both in favor and opposition of the ordinance.
Many wore stickers that said “Pueblo = Equality” asking the council to put aside personal beliefs and focus on equal worker rights. About a dozen spoke in favor of it, saying it should be based on how hard that person works, not the gender make-up of their family.
