Also available on the nbc app

The Supreme Court ruled on June 15 that a landmark civil rights law protects LGBTQ+ people from employment discrimination. In a 6-3 vote, the court decided that the Title VII provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which makes it illegal for employers to fire or discriminate based on a person's sex, also encompasses the rights of LGBTQ+ workers. Celebrities including Taylor Swift, Chelsea Handler, George Takei and more took to social media to praise the monumental decision.
