NAMPA -- The city of Nampa has been asked to consider enacting an ordinance that would protect the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community from discrimination.

Melissa Sue Robinson, an proponent of an anti-discrimination ordinance, brought the issue before city council Monday night.

She told the council that she and others of the LGBT community in Nampa have been victims of discrimination -- and she wants the city to take a stand against it.

Nampa Mayor Tom Dale said the council would take the issue under advisement, but Robinson told KTVB she won't stop petitioning the city for an ordinance.

"We keep coming until they say yes.  We don't give up," said Robinson.

Nampa would become the seventh city in Idaho to enact an anti-discrimination ordinance.

Boise passed a similar ordinance last year.
