BIG NEWS: We just passed the #EqualityAct in the House!
This is a big win for the LGBTQ+ community–and our nation.
No American should be discriminated against because of where they live, who they love, or how they identify.
The Senate needs to take up & pass this bill NOW.

You know who else shouldn’t be discriminated against?
Girls who are born girls, and who later in life wish to compete fairly with

The “feminists” who run around with pink hats glued to their heads are silent as women’s rights get completely obliterated under the Equality Act.
Where are all the so-called feminists?

That’s a good question. Where are all the feminists who fought so hard for women’s rights?

Just heard the Equality Act passed the House! Now it’s up to us in the Senate to pass it too. LBGTQ+ folks have waited too long for these protections.
