Activists, Politicians, Celebs Rejoice at SCOTUS Pro-LGBTQ+ Ruling

SCOTUS

Monday's Supreme Court ruling confirming LGBTQ+ people are protected from workplace discrimination was heralded around the nation.

The world's most prominent LGBTQ+ people, along with many allies, weighed in on on the surprising 6-3 decision, with the majority opinion written by conservative Donald Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch. Jubilation may be the best word to describe the response, especially since the news followed years of attacks on LGBTQ+ people from the Trump administration and months of quarantine and high-profile killings of unarmed Black people by police. There also were numerous reminders on Twitter that the ruling does not protect LGBTQ+ people from discrimination in housing and public accommodations and that Congress must pass the Equality Act to fully protect queer individuals.
