"Ending workplace discrimination is one of the most important issues for hard-working LGBTQ employees in the fight for liberty and equality, and one that Log Cabin Republicans has long been advocating for. Today's 6-3 Supreme Court opinion, authored by President Trump's first nominee to the high court Justice Neil Gorsuch, affirms discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the workplace is now illegal across the nation. And while we celebrate today, we know that the real work needs to continue in Congress passing bipartisan legislation that will update the Civil Rights Act and remove any ambiguity that sexual orientation and gender identity are protected. We hope that a bipartisan legislative solution will emerge to provide lasting equality and parity in education, housing and other federal taxpayer-funded services as well." - Charles Moran, Managing Director, Log Cabin Republicans
