Washington Post — The long march toward equal rights for gay, lesbian and transgender Americans — whose advocates have eyed major advances with complete Democratic control in Washington — has run into a wall of opposition in the U.S. Senate.
While Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., hinted at a potential action this month — the annual LGBTQ Pride Month — Senate aides and advocates say there are no immediate plans to vote on the Equality Act, which would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the protected classes of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, alongside race, color, religion and national origin.
Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., one of two openly gay senators, said she has quietly been lobbying Republican colleagues on the issue and there has been only “incremental progress,” though efforts are continuing.

I'm not sure what civil rights refer in the US, but equal marriage equality was about the last right I championed, being gay.
Since then, (although it varies globally), I'm not sure what more civil rights we need?
