(SALINA, Kan.) — Clinton Clark says he's found his place in Salina. He's a dance instructor and local bartender.
Clark is also gay. He says his friends and employers support him, but knows others have been discriminated against.
"The people I'm around and the work that I do, it's nothing but love and support," Clark said. "But, I hear stories. I hear about people getting bear up and I hear about people getting made fun of."
On Tuesday night, 54 percent of Salina voters decided to repeal an ordinance protecting sexual orientation and gender identity in the workplace.
Clark says he understands what he does affects other people. However, he is frustrated that people who are not part of the LGBT community can play such a big role in his life.
