News ENDA Passes the US House

That’s the Employment Non-Discriminatin Act,” which would protect gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and straights from employment discrimination. Barney Frank’s speech is pretty amazing.
The vote was 235-184, with 35 Republicans voting with Dems. Oh, and apparently there’s been a huge controversy in Gayland over the inclusion or exclusion of trans folks from ENDA. Anyone been following that?
John Aravosis at Americablog is doing great work tracking this bill—hell, moving this bill—and following/driving the debate about it.
Oh, and Rep. John Lewis’ speech is terrific.
Maybe he could go on tour with Barack Obama?
