The Supreme Court has made a landmark ruling for LGBT rights.
On Monday, the Court declared that LGBT workers are protected from workplace discrimination under the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which outlaws racial, religious, or sex-based discrimination.
The Court ruled 6-3 in support of the law, marking the biggest moment for LGBT rights since same-sex marriage was declared legal in 2015.
