Equality Act Endorsed By Clinton, Sanders, O'Malley. Cosponsored by 195 Democrats in House & Senate.

Yet no Republican members of Congress or Presidential candidate have come out in support of the Equality Act so far. Any question as to which party that LGBTQ people should be voting for? The next time you run into a Log Cabin Republican, make them remember who had our backs when it counted!

It'll probably die in the GOP-controlled Congress. It's a shame. Perhaps we can get corporate America to goad the GOP into passing it; I think money will be only way to get some Congress people on board.

I still can't believe that the Employment Non-Discrimination Act can't pass. It seems like such a no-brainer. If ENDA can't pass, I don't think the Equality Act stands a chance.

This personally affects everyone.

Yes that includes straights accused of being gay.

Not past that yet are we?
