ABSTRACT
The article reports that M and Sandra Patton-Imani, a lesbian couple, have won a case against the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in Des Moines, Iowa. The couple filed a suit against the YMCA for revoking their family membership because they were not considered a family. However, the city commission ruled that the YMCA's definition of a family may violate a city ordinance that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation.
