This touches my heart. I'm so happy to hear this. Vicco is leading the way for gay rights in Appalachian Kentucky towns, and inspiring people across the globe. I'm so proud to say that I've lived her for the last 38 years.

I'm so proud to say that I've lived *here* (in Vicco) for the last 38 years.

I like gay people but I don't see a point for the ordinance except to get attention for some people as it has.

I guess the point is that if a small town located in Kentucky could pass a ordinance than why can't larger cities do the same. The world didn't end and nothing in this area changed. I wouldn't think that your population is large and this made national and international news. I think this says a lot for this area to show acceptance for many who aren't accepted by others
