House Passes Equality Act, Provides Civil Rights Protections To Gay And Transgender People | The Daily Caller --- --In a 224-206 vote, the House passed the Equality Act. H.R. 5 would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act in order to prevent “discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.” Three Republicans voted with Democrats in favor of the Equality Act. --The act would mandate that individuals cannot be denied access to the locker room of their choice. --“An individual shall not be denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual’s gender identity,” according to the bill’s text. --Democrats tried to pass the Equality Act in 2019, but it was killed by a Republican-controlled Senate. --- Is there a democrat/liberal on the PF who is in favor of this act? If so why? Any democrat against the act? If so why? Speak up, man.
