Saint Louis Region
PROMO was proud to have the St. Louis County Council pass protections for the LGBT community in employment, housing, in public accommodations. In passing the ordinance, the St. Louis County Council protected over 321,000 St. Louis residents in unincorporated, St. Louis County. The work continues in the St. Louis region for extending discrimination on a local, municipal level by working with cities to remedy the exclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity from their nondiscrimination protections.
The communities that have stood in protecting the LGBT community in the St. Louis region have been St. Louis City, Unincorporated, St. Louis County, University City, Olivette, Clayton, Richmond Heights, Creve Coeur, Ferguson, Maplewood, Kirkwood, Webster Groves (housing protections), and Maryland Heights (housing protections).

PROMO continues to educate individuals in the region around issues of equality, giving lectures and presentations throughout the community. Many individuals and organizations look to PROMO as a resource, including the students and faculty of Southeast Missouri State University in their campaign to extend nondiscrimination protections to its LGBT students, faculty, and staff.
