Congressional Democrats on Wednesday reintroduced the Equality Act, which, if signed into law, would be the first federal law protecting LGBTQ+ Americans.
"In most states in this country, a gay couple can be married on Saturday, post their wedding photos to Instagram on Sunday, and lose their jobs or get kicked out of their apartments on Monday just because of who they are," said David Cicilline(D-RI), the bill's main sponsor. "We are reintroducing the Equality Act in order to fix this."
