Protesters gathered in front of the United States Supreme Court in Washington on Tuesday, October 8, to rally in support of workplace protections for LGBT+ as the Supreme Court heard two LGBT+ employment-rights cases.
October 8 marked the first time the Supreme Court heard an LGBTQ rights case since the appointment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, reports said.
Gay and transgender rights groups are concerned that the new Supreme Court judge could change the course of the law in relation to employment rights.
News reports said about 20 people were arrested during the protest.
