WASHINGTON (1010 WINS) -- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday met with the cast of Netflix's "Queer Eye," who were on Capitol Hill to discuss with lawmakers the Equality Act, which would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination based on one’s gender identity or sexual orientation.

"Thank you all for visiting me! You made my work day," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday. 

Jonathan Van Ness, one of the cast members posted a photo of the group with Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi, writing "Never been more proud."

Antoni Porowski, another member of the "Queer Eye" cast, also posted a photo on Instagram with Ocasio-Cortez, writing, "Both of us previously waiters. Today, one of us is championing for The Violence Against Women Act, ending the privatization of prisons, enacting gun-control policies and abolishing U.S Immigration and Customs enforcement, while the other regularly contemplates what kind of cheese to end the day with. Guess who’s who!"
