A gay rights group has planned a rally at the Capitol on Wednesday in support of anti-discrimination legislation.

The Fairness Coalition will also press for a tougher anti-bully law at the 1:30 p.m. EST event.

Proponents from across Kentucky are expected to take part, including the mayor of the tiny eastern Kentucky town of Vicco that recent passed an ordinance protecting residents from discrimination based on sexual orientation.

The rally is intended to pressure lawmakers to pass legislation pending in the House and Senate that would protect all Kentuckians from such discrimination. It is also to push lawmakers to pass the anti-bullying bill to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.
