Today, Congress introduced the Equality Act, which strengthens federal civil rights laws and makes it explicitly illegal to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
If passed, the Equality Act would be the first law to ensure LGBTQ people are covered by explicit, nationwide non-discrimination protections across key areas of life, including employment, housing, and public spaces.…
The bill would also ensure that all businesses open to the public are covered under laws that bar discrimination — making it illegal to discriminate against individuals for “shopping while Black” or “flying while Brown.”
The bill significantly expands protections against sex discrimination, including in federally funded programs and in businesses open to the public.

This would make practices like that of mechanics charging women more than men for the same car services illegal.
