“Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was seen walking with the cast of “Queer Eye” in Washington on Thursday.

The cast, known as the “Fab 5,” was there to pressure lawmakers to support the Equality Act, which aims to ensure federal protections for LGBTQ people.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez strolled through Capitol Hill with four members of the cast of the hit Netflix show “Queer Eye” on Thursday and people who witnessed it could not contain their excitement.

The “Queer Eye” stars were there to promote the Equality Act— legislation that would implement federal protections for LGBTQ people. The law seeks to build off of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended de jure segregation and prohibited discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.”

And she introduced them to the Speaker.

Keep upsetting the apple-cart Alexandria.
