SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The San Antonio City Council on Thursday adopted anti-bias protections for gay and transgender citizens over the protests of religious conservatives and top Republicans in Texas. 

The 8-3 council vote adds the nation's seventh-largest city to a list of nearly 180 others nationwide with ordinances banning discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. 

San Antonio was the last major Texas city without the protections.
