Did T-shirt company violate Lexington's fairness ordinance? States high court to decide.

Kentucky’s highest court will hear a controversial case involving a Lexington company’s refusal to print a T-shirt for the city’s annual gay-pride festival.

The company’s owner said he had religious objections to “pride in being gay.”

The Lexington Human Rights Commission ruled that Hands On Originals violated the Lexington’s fairness ordinance, part of which prohibits businesses that are open to the public from discriminating against people based on sexual orientation.
