The Human Rights Campaign has given the City of Rochester high ranks on its 2013 Municipal Equality Index scorecard.
The city grabbed 98 out of a maximum 100 points on the scorecard, which examined a broad range of criteria, including existence of non-discrimination laws, recognition of domestic partnerships, existence of school anti-bullying policies, and whether the city has a police liaison to the LGBT community.
But the rankings are also instructive, identifying a few areas where the city could do better. It could provide transgender-inclusive health benefits, the report says. And the city could form a human rights commission.
