The “City of Brotherly Love” really showed its love for the LGBT community as Mayor Michael Nutter signed what’s being called the most comprehensive piece of LGBT equal-rights legislation in the country. Yesterday, Philadelphia became the only big city in the United States to “offer tax credits to companies that extend the same health care coverage to LGBT employees’ life partners and their children as they already provide to heterosexual spouses and their children,” according to the AP. This also includes offering business tax credits for companies that give transgender-specific benefits. That’s not all, the bill also requires gender-neutral bathrooms in city-owned buildings.
