Denton City Hall.

This story has been updated to reflect that George Ferrie will be on the panel discussing the issue.

A panel discussion titled “Conversation Over Controversy” will be hosted by community leaders in the council chambers at Denton City Hall at 3 p.m. Saturday, July 20.

The discussion will pertain to whether the city should adopt an LGBTQ anti-discrimination ordinance, according to a release on Facebook.

The panel will be moderated by Denton City Council member Jesse Davis. On the panel will be former City Council candidate George Ferrie, whose campaign earlier this year focused on expanding protections through an anti-discrimination ordinance.

In addition, the panel will include Jim Mann, lead pastor of New Life Church; Paul Juarez, executive director of First Refuge Ministries; and Amber Briggle, a member of Human Rights Campaign’s Parents for Transgender Equality National Council.

The discussion is open to the general public, and members of the greater Denton community are invited to listen and submit questions to the panel.
