Supporting gay pride events has been banned by the Hillsborough County government for several years. But that could be about to change. On Wednesday, the Hillsborough County Commission will vote on eliminating the ban. For eight years, the local gay community has been blocked out of officials recognition by the commission. Some say the county's policy on LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) events has cost the county conventions and new business.
