Just because same-sex marriage was declared constitutional, doesn't mean things are all rainbows and giggles for the LGBTQ community. There are still many legal ways to discriminate against queer people.

John Oliver is on the party bus along with the rest of the country, celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision to allow same-sex couples to marry in this country. But he’s also the guy at the reception to remind everyone that not everything is party favors and the ‘Electric Slide.’

In fact, in 31 states in America it is not illegal to fire, evict, or otherwise discriminate against LGBTQ couples. So, as Oliver points out, a gay couple can get married on Saturday, live in marital bliss on Sunday, and be asked to leave their job on Monday. It’s pretty sad and very backwards. Watch last night’s clip to join in on the outrage.
