173 Republicans Voted Against the Equality Act—8 Voted for It

Even though its future is highly in doubt, the Equality Act — which would federally ban discrimination against LGBTQ people — advanced today when the legislation cleared the House of Representatives on a vote of 236-173.

Every Democrat present for the vote gave a thumbs-up to the bill, while nearly all Republicans were a "no." Of the 197 Republicans in the House, 173 voted against the Equality Act, 16 were not present or didn't vote, and eight said "yes."

Here are the eight House Republicans who put equality before party:

Susan Brooks, Indiana's Fifth Congressional District

Brian Fitzpatrick, Pennsylvania's First Congressional District

Elise Stefanik, New York's 21st Congressional District

Greg Walden, Oregon's Second Congressional District

John Katko, New York's 24th Congressional District

Mario Diaz-Balart, Florida's 25th Congressional District

Tom Reed, New York's 23rd Congressional District

Will Hurd, Texas's 23rd Congressional District
