The Miami-Dade County Commission gave preliminary approval Tuesday to add transgender protections to the county’s human rights law.
Last year, Miami-Dade County considered outlawing discrimination against transgender individuals as it already does for other groups.
But the item failed to draw enough support and was withdrawn.
On Tuesday, the commission revisited the issue. It passed unanimously.
A few members of the public spoke in support of the transgender community. No one spoke in opposition.
