Virginia Republican Rep. Scott Taylor introduced a bill on Thursday to ban anti-LGBTQ discrimination when renting or selling housing.

The bill would amend federal anti-discrimination fair-housing laws to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

It’s the representative’s first bill, and it makes him stand out from his fellow Republicans, who tend to be staunchly anti-LGBTQ.

“It’s a personal-freedom issue,” Taylor said, quoted in The Virginian-Pilot. “To me it is a conservative belief to have the pursuit of happiness and to be free as long as you’re not hurting someone else.”
